Hurricane Irma struck our grove with a vengeance in mid September, destroying 70% of our navels and ALL of our grapefruit crop. We had a tornado touch down less than a block from our grove, and the rain made the ground so soft that many trees were uprooted. We lost 42 trees to the storm, and the ground is littered with oranges and grapefruit.Because of this loss, WE WILL BE UNABLE TO SHIP GIFT FRUIT THIS YEAR. We simply don't have enough quality fruit to supply our friends and customers in the frigid north with our usual "Florida Sunshine". We will keep the grove open for as long as possible with fresh fruit sales here at the farm, but won't be able to ship out to our many customers. We will spend this time re-planting and tending to our remaining trees, so PLEASE keep us in mind next year when fruit season rolls around.
