Churchill Orchard in the Ojai Valley is in the beautiful East End of the Ojai Valley in Southern California.
We grow about 12 acres of tangerines – mostly Pixie tangerines, Seedless Kishu tangerines, and Page tangors, – and 3 acres of avocados – Hass, Fuerte, and Bacon varieties, plus a single magnificent Mexicola Grande. Everything we grow is CCOF-certified Organic.

We’ll contact you when the fruit is ready.
Our web store offers mail order service during our growing season – late January thru May. We offer Kishu Mandarins in February (short season), followed by Pixie tangerines, Hass avocados, sometimes other seasonal delights depending on our supply. Our catalog is open year round for browsing.
We hope to offer limited quantities of our seedless Kishu Mandarins starting in late January 2022. We hope for 3 weeks of shipping. Things usually loosen up later in the season – we have a nice crop of Ojai Pixies and Hass avocados, plus some Oro Blancos and Pages.
Yes, we use that word “hope” a lot. Things usually work out.
