Star Nursery is a fourth-generation, family-owned and operated citrus nursery and orchard. Dawn Camardelle, the owner and fourth-generation cultivator behind Star Nursery comes from a line of truck farmers turned citrus farmers. Her parents had the idea to expand in the late 60s and early 70s, using their savings to buy trees no bigger than a pencil. It was a slow start, but the family began budding and grafting trees, eventually growing into the bountiful orchard we enjoy today. Learn more about their planting practices by clicking here. Blueberries and veggies like garlic, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, and Dawn’s favorite - creole tomatoes - are also grown on the Belle Chasse farm, though their primary products are the citrus fruits and satsumas we enjoy from October through January. Find Star Nursery’s satsumas and garlic at all of our markets throughout the week!
