Kitchel Family Organics

We own 10 acres 28 miles north of Chico and 12 miles south of Red Bluff. My husband John, who received his bachelor's degree in Agriculture over 30 years ago from CA State University Chico, owns Lassen Landscapes, a landscape design and installation business. He (the "green thumb" in the family) planted over 250 fruit and nut trees and hundreds of ornamentals. (Also, there were existing trees of quite a few varieties when we purchased our home/property.) We also have a large summer garden, a smaller winter garden, a little vineyard and a large strawberry patch. Last year, we planted blueberries! Our farm is a very small - solely family - operation: John plants; I weed, pick and sell. Our children occasionally come home to help when they have breaks from their universities.

We started organic gardening in 2003 and became Registered Organic (reg. # 52-003206) in 2008 through the State of California Agricultural Commission's Organic Program. We've NEVER used ANY pesticides on any of our crops (all GMO-free, too, of course). We compost and occasionally use diatamaceous earth, Neem Oil, Earth Juice products or mineral sprays such as copper.

We grow a wide variety of ORGANIC produce, including quite a few HEIRLOOM items: ORGANIC WALNUTS (Eureka, Chandler, Franquette, Mayette - all ambient air dried), peaches, nectarines, plums, pluots, apricots, blackberries, pomegranates, figs, pecans, pistachios, almonds, cantaloupe, grapes, strawberries, apples, watermelon, honeydew, tomatoes, peas, peppers, squash, sunflowers, baby greens, spinach, kale, broccoli, lettuces, swiss chard, mizuna, arugula, potatoes, onions, garlic, basil, eggplant, mandarins, oranges, grapefruit, lemons, limes, tangerines - you name it! We also SUN-DRY fruit (without sulfur), primarily peaches, nectarines, figs and apricots, and we have plants and trees for sale.

We deliver produce to local businesses (including a CSA and a few natural food stores), and to individuals. We also sell right from the farm.

We SHIP our exceptionally scrumptious, unique ORGANIC HEIRLOOM WALNUTS, PECANS and SUN-DRIED FRUIT. We sell out quickly, however.

Please call or email us if you would like to visit our farm and sample some of our delicious produce.
