Hello again, Yoders’ Farm friends!
We hope these busy days before Christmas include some time for reflection on it’s true meaning!
Though we certainly don’t want to commercialize the season more than it already is, we are excited to let you know that we are 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.
We have been fortunate enough to savor their wares for 6 or 8 years on a small scale, sharing with church family and acquaintances the sweet goodness of mandarin oranges, fresh lemons, and of course, navel oranges and pink grapefruit direct from their farm and others around Bakersfield. After considerable thought we have decided to spread the goodness and offer these treats to our Yoders’ Farm friends this season.
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 this will work very similarly.
Here is how the order process will work.
- Fill out the form below.
- Once we get notice that the load is headed east 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 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, occasionally its been a bit later.
Get while the getting is good!
Citrus orders are complete for 2019!
