Hello Yoders’ everyone!
We are excited to once again be offering California citrus and nuts to our Yoders’ Farm customers this year!
This tasty development came about, once again, through family connections! A cousin moved to Bakersfield, California years ago, bought a citrus farm, and started a trucking company. They have been growing citrus of their own, hauling some for others, and developing a fascinating business model of direct marketing through individuals in communities across the country.
In addition to the citrus, various nuts, carrots, beets, and more are also available! The carrots are sweet and ideal for juicing, The Medjool dates are the sweetest we’ve tasted. The beets keep well and are a healthy choice! And who doesn’t like pistachios, especially the flavored ones!
We have been impressed with the quality, freshness, and taste of the items we’ve purchased over the years. Of course, a little vitamin C can help you shake those mid-winter colds and doldrums as well!
For those familiar with our New Jersey blueberry ordering the order and pick-up process will work very similarly.
Here is how the order process will work.
- Fill out the form below.
- Once we get the notice that the load of citrus is headed east (some years it has been early January, other years it has been later in the month) we’ll email you and let you know when you can plan to pick up your order.
- We’ll email a reminder again the day that the load arrives.
- You will come to the farm (1134 Browns Mill Rd, Rustburg, VA) to pick up and pay for your order.
- If your order hasn’t been picked up within two days we will attempt to sell them to someone else and your order will be marked as fulfilled. (If for some reason you can’t pick up your order please let us know as soon as possible.)
One thing to remember is that the timing of deliveries is somewhat variable due to harvest and travel variables. We have usually received our orders in the first half of January, but occasionally it’s been a bit later.
