Morse Farms was established in 2002, when the family planted 400 Satsuma Owari mandarin trees at 8 Feathervale Drive in the eastern foothills in Oroville, California. We now have close to 600 trees including minneolas, oranges, lemon grapefruits and apples. The orchard was planted using sustainable farming methods such as micro-emitter sprinkler heads to reduce water usage, and leaving grass between the rows of trees to reduce soil erosion and a flat area to capture any water runoff that might occur to allow percolation back into the ground. Our farm also uses bark for weed and erosion control in other planted areas. Sprays are kept to a minimum by only spraying when needed. The family recycles, composts and uses little to no electricity during the picking, cleaning, sorting or boxing of the fruit, creating a minimal carbon footprint. Our family hand wipes each piece of fruit with white terry cloth towels and provides hand sorting and inspection when bagging and boxing the fruit. This operation also guarantees that you receive the best quality of fruit in every bag or box.

Mandarin oranges are known for being a healthy, natural snack. Its size is perfect for a child’s lunchbox or an adult’s pocket. Full of vitamins, at 45 calories each and 0.1 grams of fat, it’s one of the best low fat foods you can eat. We suggest you enjoy mandarins in their natural form and check out these recipes that you can use during the holidays and all year to add the benefits of mandarins to your diet. Mandarin Recipes
