Moms Country Orchard provides Oak Glen residents with a healthful harvest of locally grown, pesticide-free fruits and vegetables. Nestled amid the San Bernardino Mountains, the orchard specializes in hard to find heirloom varieties, all of which are grown without the use of commercial pesticides, fertilizers, or sacrificial brussels sprouts. Savor the seedy stuff with favorite apple varieties such as red delicious, gala, granny, and arkansas black. Apple varieties can be mixed and matched and purchased in one-quarter-peck bags ($8), half-peck bags ($10–$12), half-bushel boxes ($32–$38), or full–bushel boxes ($50–$60). Like the popularity of rhinestone jeggings, Moms' stock changes with the season, welcoming winter by stocking the shelves with in-season citrus such as oranges, grapefruits, and blood oranges (all $1–$2 per pound), and vegetables such as beets, carrots, and bunches of fresh greens ($2) can be found at various times throughout the year. Regardless of the time of year, all Moms’ produce is sustainably grown with an adherence to a strict natural preservation program to minimize harm to the planet and their customers.

Trees-R-Us stocks its four Orange County retail locations with festive evergreen varieties such as Douglas, Grand, and Nordmann Firs—an annual tradition since 1981. The outfit sources its specimens from Oregon’s Willamette Valley, a humane and happy home that lets the trees mature in dignity, build up their limb strength, and develop the willpower to not laugh when tickled by children. The company’s expert tree growers cut each batch as late in the season as possible before sending them out to each location, where they’re graded according to height and shape and then arranged for easy perusing.
