We Only Sell What We Grow !
California's San Joaquin Valley, the world's most productive agricultural region, is unique in its diversity. On the eastern side of this great valley, near the slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountains, nature has created some of the finest citrus land on earth. It is here that Sequoia Orange Company makes its home.
Sequoia consists of three closely related companies: Sequoia Enerprises, Inc. (our marketing company), Sequoia Orange Company, Inc. (our packing company), and Badger Farming Company, Inc.. Sequoia is a privetely owned business committed to providing excellence in its products and service, committed to the highest quality fruit, and committed to customer satisfaction.
Sequoia is unusual. There are very few totally independent citrus packing houses. Even fewer perform all functions, including sales. We are proud of our independence and believe it provides us with opportunities unavailable to our competition.
The Sequoia name comes from the tree depicted on our carton. This variety of evergreen grows only in the Sierra Nevada Mountains directly east of our groves. These huge trees are the oldest living things on earth, and some are still alive after 2,500 years.
These trees are a symbol of enduring quality â€¦ we too intend to be known for our unique quality.
If and when special situations arise, answers are available quickly since the company is directly involved at all levels of the citrus supply. Problems are a part of any business, especially one centered in the production, processing, selling and shipping of a perishable commodity. Answers come directly from owner-management. There are no middle men.
As a fully integrated company (grower, packer, seller), Sequoia only picks fruit as it's sold: we don't keep a large inventory. This ensures that only the freshest fruit is shipped to our customers. Our packing house is equipped with state-of-the-art automatic graders as well as hand packing lines, yet we still have the capability of hand-packing every piece of fruit run through the house. So when conditions call for it, we can ensure only the best fruit is shipped.
As a fully integrated company: grower, packer, and seller, Sequoia is responsible for operations at all levels. This fact assures a timely product flow and a one-on-one relationship between Sequoia and its customers.
