Who are we?

We are a family owned farm located in the central northern part of California’s Central Valley in Yuba City and Winters. A UC Davis professor and a registered nurse, James A. Beutel and Kalayada A. Beutel, started the orchards, respectively. Nowadays, the day to day operations are assisted by their eldest daughter, Aomboon and her husband Tim.You can find us year-round at farmers’ markets and on restaurant menus of the most distinguished establishments throughout the bay area.

What we grow?

We are a year round farm that offers a variety of produce to our local and nationwide clients. We usually begin our harvest seasons in May with cherries then apricots, peaches, nectarines, plums, and pluots. As the summer continues we also have apples, pears, persimmons, nuts, citrus fruits, and other delectable treats.

Va de Vi

On Monday night, the 20th of June we had the opportunity to have a scrumptious dinner at Va de Vi in Walnut Creek, California.  A very well respected and talented chef was at the helm that evening, Shane Mcanelly. Here at K&J Orchards we really admire his enthusiasm and the respect he gives us small farmers' as he appreciates and respects the origin of his ingredients. Our peaches and cherries were displayed in a wonderful spicy arugula salad that we had during our 12 course adventure!

Cherries are here but not for very long!

Hello! We are happy to have some cherries for you this season! We have lost about 80% of our wonderful sweet scrumptious cherries due to the late rainfall during the month of May. Apricots and Peaches are getting into the swing of things by slowly getting ripe and the sugar content slowly inching up the scale. Come to a farmers' market near you to enjoy some of the season's best selections!
