The Lord Botetourt FFA is currently holding it’s annual citrus fruit sale. “This is one of our biggest fundraisers for the year with much of the money going to support our community service work around the Christmas holiday’s.” said Stuart Byrd. Last year the group participated in the Toys for Bot E Tots program and purchased gifts for residents of local nursing homes.
The FFA members are selling premium citrus trucked in fresh from Florida and locally grown apples from Ikenberry’s orchard. Varieties available include Seedless Navel oranges and Red Navels for $30.00 for a 4/5 bushel size or $20.00 for a 2/5 bushel box; Tangelo’s, Hamlin Juice Oranges and Ruby Red Grapefruit all of which come in both 4/5 bushel size for $25.00 per box and 2/5 bushel sizes for $15.00 per box. The FFA is also offering tangerines in 2/5 bushel sizes only for $20.00 per box. Red Delicious or Golden Delicious Apples are sold for $30.00 a bushel and $16.00 for a half bushel.
