8 generations and counting …
On the fertile banks of the King’s River, where the cool, clean water from the Sierra Nevada and California’s Central Valley meet, you’ll find Kings River Packing. Proud growers, packers and shippers of the highest quality citrus from an eighth generation family farm.
In 1866, the founder of the family, William Hazelton rode home from Mexico with oranges in his saddlebag. Little did he know of the tradition that would grow from just two little seeds of that fruit.
Kings River Packing and the Hazelton family have always held true to their roots. A lasting tradition of good business and production of a quality crop is built on operational expertise and down home family values. It’s a commitment to family, company and community.
