Ojai Pixie season 2016 is here!
Harvest began the last week of February and we have been selling like crazy. We have a smaller crop, so get ’em while they last.
Our season will be wrapping up in mid-April this year (except that we are keeping Ojai in Pixies through the month of April as we have t keep our community in Pixies for the month of April… see www.ojaipixiemonth.com)
Plan a visit to the source: April will again by a flurry of activity involving Ojai Pixies here in our valley. If you can, come visit our lovely valley during the spring. Check here to see what’s happening for Ojai Pixie Month.
The Asian Citrus Psyllid in Ojai: This insect pest has arrived in Ojai. Please visit this page set up by Ojai Growers for regular updates. It is important that everyone in Ojai work together to keep this pest from becoming established in our lovely valley.
Our lunchboxes are here! A long time project of Tony and Emily of Friend’s Ranches has been to make a lunchbox for Ojai Pixies. Ojai Pixies are superbly portable and the best thing to pack in a lunch or picnic so we have made you something fun and stylish to tote your Ojai Pixies in. We teamed up with local cartoonist Sergio Aragonès (yes, of MAD magazine) and we absolutely love them! You can find the Ojai Pixie lunchboxes for sale in Ojai at Friend’s Ranches, the Ojai Museum giftshop, and Westridge markets. You can also order them to be shipped by mail at Friend’s Ranches.
Ojai Pixie Tangerines

- Delicious eaten out of hand or in salads
- Kids love them
- Perfectly portable for purses or picnics
Ojai Pixie Tangerine Growers grow the best springtime tangerines. 52 tangerine growers – family-scale farmers all of us – have a total of about 25,000 tangerine trees in southern California’s beautiful Ojai Valley. Our tangerines come ripe sometime in March, and we sell them both wholesale and direct for as long as we have fruit to sell, usually sometime in May or June.
Please enjoy the season and let us know where you find our fruits.
