Orange you glad citrus season is here!? L’Hoste Citrus is back at market with satsumas, lemons, persimmons, and, for just a short while longer, limes! In 1981, Lester and Linda L’Hoste bought a property and 151 trees, beginning their journey into the world of citrus farming. Today, the orchard spans 15 acres of planted citrus. The pair uses methods such as tree grafting (uniting two different plant tissues into one) and have been certified organic since 1996. Their mission is to produce the best products for their customers; they would like to extend a warm thanks to everyone who has supported their farm and family over the years. This season, you can expect to find L’Hoste Citrus selling delicious satsumas, navel oranges, grapefruits, Meyer lemons, mandarins, kumquats, blood oranges, and tangerines at our Tuesday and Thursday markets. Talk about eating the rainbow!
