Three years in the making….organic certified!

We just picked our first bin of organic late navels!   

 
We started the transition to organic on part of our acreage three years ago. It seemed like it would be forever till we were certified. Three years of higher costs of cultivation, yet sales as conventional fruit. But here we are. Certified!  

So look for Sunkist organic navels in the stores. They could be ours!

Ever notice that they never show you the inside of a fruit tree?  That is often where the best fruit is.   The pictures below were taken this past December.

Look at all that fruit.  Fruit that’s been sheltered from the wind and rain and sun.  Just let to grow and get super sweet.
