The fruit is all premium quality, carefully inspected but not size graded. Every bag or box of fruit is hand packed.

Mandarins, Marmalades, Produce in season
With the planting of mandarin trees in 1993 our small family farm officially became Ann’s Orchard. Although we do have other fruits and vegetables in season the seedless Owari Satsuma is our specialty. Relying on hedgerow plantings to attract beneficial insects and OMRI approved fertilizers we have no need for chemicals or pesticides. Each mandarin is in fact carefully inspected with only premium fruit being selected for market or shipping. Its from these premium fruits that we produce three popular marmalades. With the zest and juice of these fruits and our own recipes we have produced a Mandarin; Mandarin – Apricot and Mandarin – Apricot with Habanero marmalade. All three make excellent additions to, or accompaniments for baked goods. The habanero mix is especially good as a barbeque glaze.
