About S & J Mandarin Grove

  

S & J Mandarin Grove was started in April 2001 by Steve and June Bourn on five acres in the quiet Newcastle countryside of Placer County, California. Placer County is known for its quality produce. The warm days, cool nights, and decomposed granite soil make it an excellent location to grow sweet, seedless, Owari Satsuma mandarin oranges. Today we have 350 Owari Satsuma mandarin trees and take pride in our top quality mandarins. Each mandarin is hand-picked and only the very best will be sold to our loyal customers.

steve and june bourn mandarin farmers in placer county californiaWhen we decided to use the land we built our family home on, the idea of farming mandarin oranges was the perfect solution. The decision to grow organic is important to us, not only for the health and well being of our family, but every living creature around us.

A portion of our property is devoted to preserving wildlife. We are very fortunate to have wild Canadian geese and several varieties of ducks that make our property their home to live and multiply. They live on our large pond and graze all year on our cover crop of pasture grass.

Steve planted all of our mandarin trees one-by-one with help from our two sons, Brian and David. After all these years the mandarin trees are doing great and (with lots of mowing) Steve keeps the citrus grove looking like a beautiful park. June works on marketing strategies to promote sales and business opportunities. Our daughter-in-law, Jennifer takes care of our website through her Internet marketing and branding company, Bourn Creative.

Our family absolutely loves spending time out on the property and playing in the Mandarin Grove. Steve and June, their sons David, and Brian, daughter-in-law Jennifer, and grandkids Natalie and Carter spend a lot of time outside and enjoying nature. What's Natalie and Carter's activity of choice? Riding the quad through the mandarin trees and around the pond with Grandpa or Daddy. We all love to walk the grove and watch the geese and for a while, escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life!
