Oranges & Grapefruit

Ume branches in bloom (Japanese sour plum)
Blood oranges and grapefruit are now picked and at the fruit stand.  If you like soft persimmons, we have the very last ones of the season now.  We're still selling hoshigaki (Japanese hand-dried persimmon) at the fruit stand and through mail order, while supplies last.  Maybe hoshigaki would make a good Valentines or Chinese new year gift?

 The next delivery for the Sierra Foothills Meat Buyers Club will be at our orchard from 4:00 - 5:00 on Friday, Feb. 17th. Orders need to be received by Fri.,  Feb. 10th at 5:00.  Through the Sierra Foothills Meat Buyers Club you can order local naturally grown pork and lamb, grass-fed beef, pastured poultry, eggs, honey and other local products. 

Here's what's at the fruit stand now:
  • Mandarins--owari satsuma
  • Navel Oranges
  • Blood Oranges
  • Lemons
  • Kiwi
  • Hoshigaki (Japanese hand-dried persimmon) 
  • Soft Persimmons
