During March and April our fruit stand hours change during the weekdays.

Here are our March and April hours:

Tues., Wed., Thurs.--11:30 am to 1:30 pm

Although these are our scheduled fruit stand hours, we are usually somewhere around the orchard.   Feel free to call and ask for another time to stop by if the limited times during the weekdays don't work for you.

At the fruit stand we now have:

  • Navel Oranges
  • Cara Cara Oranges
  • Meyer Lemons
  • Eureka Lemons
  • Yellow Grapefruit
  • Kiwi
  • Hoshigaki (Japanese Hand-dried Persimmons)
  • Eggs (from local pastured chickens)
  • Jam from The Good Stuff
Right now it's a nice time to come visit and take a walk in the orchard.  As you can see in the photo above, cherry trees are budding out, pink-flowered peach trees are blooming and the white-flowered plums and pluots are finishing their blossoming.

We've been busy out in the orchard altering the irrigation to try and water more efficiently.  This spring we're changing most of the orchard's drip irrigation from micro sprayers coming up from the ground to drippers that will hang from the trees.  Tosh has continued to take out unproductive  trees and we didn't plant any new trees this year.  The past few years' practice of removing trees without planting new ones has resulted in quite a few empty areas in the orchard.  We hope to be able to replant them if the severe drought ends.
