WELCOME TO MORSE FARMS! We expect to have mandarins out to the stores and here at the mandarin shed by Saturday, November 18, 2017. We will be open from 10 am to 5 pm everyday except Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. Please note we are not longer shipping fresh fruit but will ship our various products that you can find here on our website. Have a wonderful holiday season.


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.

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

Morse Farms is family owned. We sell Satsuma mandarins in 10 lbs bags, 8 and 14 lbs boxes, Mandarin Marmalade, Mandarin pancake Syrup, Mandarin Jalapeno BBQ sauce, made from Morse Farms fruit and meat seasoning and rubs which are also excellent on vegetables. We ship gift baskets and boxes with a wide variety of mandarin products, seasoning rubs, walnuts, olive oil, BBQ Sauce from local farms and producers. Unfortunately, we no longer ship boxes of fruit due to the delays and damage that occurs to our delicate fruit.

Though mandarins are our specialty, we also grow Meyers and Eureka lemons which are also available during mandarin season. Navel oranges, are available in January and February, minneolas and grapefruits in March.
