Churchill Orchard
in the Ojai Valley


Our orchard is in the beautiful East End of the Ojai Valley in Southern California.

We grow about 12 acres of tangerines - Pixie tangerine, Page tangor, Seedless Kishu mandarin, Owari Satsuma mandarin, and a few other varieties that we're trying out - plus 5 acres of avocados - Hass, Fuerte, Mexicola Grande and Bacon varieties.

Everything we grow is CCOF-certified Organic.

----- Jim Churchill and Lisa Brenneis, Proprietors

Spring 2016 - Still hoping for rain, but El Nino did not favor us this year. Perhaps that's why our trees set a magificent bloom. May it bear fruit.

Our 2017 season begins in February (knock wood) with the incomparable Kishu Mandarin and then the Pixies return in March.

We've learned from experience that taking mail orders too far in advance can be expensive for us. Sometimes Nature has other plans for our crop. So we wait until we have a reasonable chance of delivering. We always email our list before opening up for orders on an item.

Sign up below to be notified when our delicious certified organic Kishu mandarins and Ojai Pixies are ready to ship.
