You know it’s fall when the front tables in the market are filled with Florida citrus. Back in August, I posted this picture on Facebook.
I couldn’t believe all the comments! I must say it was pretty awesome to see y’alls reactions. And as promised, Dad has been working non-stop putting the pieces together. I honestly believe there is nothing this guy can’t fix!
After countless hours of tinkering, we are happy to report Dad has completed reconstructing the new orange grading machine. Yay! Thank you Dad!
We’ve started grading Navels, Amber Sweet and Fall Glow Tangerines. The Navels are packaged in 5-pound bags and ¼ bushels. Prices for the Navels are as follow: $1.59 for a 5-pound bag and $3.49 for ¼ bushels. As the Navels become more plentiful, we’ll start packaging them in ½ bushels.
The Amber Sweet Oranges and Fall Glow Tangerines are packaged in 5-pound bags to prevent bruising. All Tangerines are $1.49.
In case you are wondering, we’ve started making our 100% freshly squeezed orange juice. If you’ve never tried our orange juice, I highly recommend it. Our orange juice is made with 100% Florida Oranges and it is freshly squeezed every day. It is unpasteurized, and has no additives or preservatives. Give it a try. You’ll be hooked!
Have you ever tried our Orange Juice? Did you know we make freshly squeezed OJ?
