The 2018 Satsuma Harvest has started

We are happy and excited to report that the Satsuma Mandarin crop this year is the biggest we have ever had. This season we will have plenty of delicious mandarins for everyone!

The harvest will start just in time for the Mandarin Festival on the weekend of November 17.   We do not have a booth at the festival, but will be available for sales from the farm on Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 pm. We also are available other hours by appointment.

The quality of fruit is excellent this year, and we will have plenty, but it will not all be ready at one time.  As our long term customers know, we will only pick fruit that is perfectly ripe, so once we have picked everything that meets our standards, we will wait a few days before we go out to the orchard to pick again.  The harvest is going to be great and prolonged this year, but we try our best to never sell a sour or tasteless mandarin, even if we have to tell people at times “we don’t have any ready right now”.  We appreciate the understanding and support of our customers who are patient with us and Mother Nature.

Adrian carefully chooses each perfectly ripe fruit and clips it from the tree to put in bags and boxes for our customers. This assures that only the very best fruit leaves our farm.

All of our fruit is 1.50 per pound, mix and match. This year we have dropped the price of mandarins to $15.00 for a ten pound bag but only for sales directly from the farm.

We will be open on weekends from 12-4 and other hours by appointment. We are usually here weekdays as well and can have mandarins ready for you on short notice. If you would like to pick up a large order of mandarins you may want to contact us in advance to be sure we have your order ready when you arrive.

Thanks for being such a great friend of our farm. We always look forward to this time of year when we can visit with all the friends we have made over the years. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Dayna and Adrian Burgeson
