J.D. & Marge Welty started planting mandarins in 1964. They had a vision, and they worked hard to realize it. They cleared the land of rocks and planted the first 5 acres by hand. In the coming years they eventually planted all 17 acres with delicious Satsuma Mandarins.

Why has the farm endured for more than 50 years? Over the years the Welty brand has understood that what customers want above all else is fresh, tree ripened and unprocessed mandarins at a fair price.  

Although Marge and J.D. no longer run the farm, the Welty name and the commitment to excellence is still the heart of our business. So if you're in the Oroville area in November and December, stop in and sample some of the sweetest mandarins in Northern California.
