Looking to send a box of fresh citrus to a friend as a gift, but looking for a more modern, conscientious version of a Harry & David. Recommendations?
My recommendation is Frog Hollow Farms (based in Brentwood, California). Their products are sold in the Food52 store so they are already "Food 52-approved."
They are suppliers to many of the SF Bay Area's best restaurants; notably Chez Panisse has been a longtime customer of Frog Hollow Farms.
100% agree with this recommendation. Their Meyer lemons are spectacular.
I have only purchased from them directly at farmers' market but I have long enjoyed their citrus (and it is organic) and I know they do ship as well - Friend's Ranch in Ojai, California.
I like Sun Harvest Citrus in Ft Myers, FL. I was just there. If you go in person, they have excellent orange ice cream.
