We are taking orders for shipped boxes of our sweet, seedless, delicious Satsuma Mandarins. When you place an order, the mandarins will be harvested, packed and shipped for you in a USPS flat rate box. Expect the mandarins within 3-7 business days from the time you order. This is what to expect:
The owner of the farm, Dayna, Adrian or Evan Burgeson, will hand pick the very best of the fruit from our Sierra foothill mandarin trees.
We will then take a USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate box and line it with another box. We will line that box with a soft liner. We do not use plastic in our packaging.
We will then hand select the mandarins to fit snugly in the box. We lay down one layer at a time. Sometimes we will put the mandarins sideways, or upside down to get a more snug fit. We may include both small and large mandarins to get a better fit so you receive the most weight for your money.
Once the box is filled, we put our “Junior” mandarin and a card inside as a cheerful reminder that this box is from Burgeson Family Farm. The card also has information for the recipient regarding our growing practices and how to store the mandarins.
Finally the top layer is also covered with the wadding material for additional protection.
We then label the top of the box, close it up, seal it with packing tape and send it out right away, usually the very same day the box is packed.
We try to use all biodegradable and recyclable materials to ship your mandarins. We also attempt to use the minimum amount of packing material necessary to protect the fruit so you can receive the maximum amount of fruit for your money. On occasion a few mandarins may develop cracks in the skin during shipping, but if you open the box to examine the contents immediately upon receipt and eat those mandarins first they should still be fresh and delicious. We would rather use the mandarins themselves as “packing material” rather than using plastic bubble wrap, packing peanuts and other unsustainable materials to protect our mandarins when shipping.
