Fresh, Delicious, Juicy Oranges and Grapefruit

Join us on Facebook for Live Updates


We are sorry for this inconvenience.  Due to the a decline in orders for oranges and grapefruit, it has become a challenge to bring delicious citrus at an affortable price.  In the past, we used to have about 500 orders for every delivery.  In the last few years, the demand for our healthy oranges has dropped to about 125 orders.  This dramatic decline raises the cost per order (box).

The bottomline is a fact of life: the higher the demand, the lower the price; the lower the demand, the higher the price.  If we could secure about 1500 orders per delivery, the prices we offer can become reasonable.  Until then, our fundraiser will be suspended indefinately.

If you have any ideas that can help us promote this worthy cause, please, do not hesistate to contact us. 

We thank all of you who have supported our fundraiser over the years.  We pray the Lord will shower you with blessings and give you abundant life.

In the meantime, we have plans to create a section for health emphasis and latest news on improving the quality of life.  Your feedback is welcome.

The Seventh-day Adventist Church in Marystown is proud to bring the freshest, juiciest, best-tasting Florida citrus to our friends in Newfoundland. The Indian River Citrus District  produces some of the worlds finest quality citrus.  Perhaps the best and premium citrus the region is known for is its Grapefruit.

The quality of citrus flavor is determined by the content and ratio of sugar, acidity, and aromatic or bitter flavors in the fruit.   The sugar content is tested and acidity measured again and again until our suppliers are convinced that the optimum balance has been achieved.  Once this balance has been reached, the tree ripened fruit is hand picked, transported to a packer, washed, and coated with a layer of water-soluble wax to enhance appearance and protect freshness. (This wax is easily removed with tap water).  The unripened fruit is left on the tree for later harvest.

From the packing house, the fruit is loaded on a truck and shipped directly to us in Newfoundland.  Each load of citrus is monitored to ensure optimal temperatures are maintained for freshness.  Once the  boxes of citrus are unloaded and checked by our volunteers, they are ready for pick up.  The fruit is ready to be eaten!!!  Now you can enjoy the best of fresh Florida citrus in your home!
