Fruit World is owned and operated by CJ Buxman and Bianca Kaprielian, third- and fourth-generation, family farmers. The duo grew up on opposite sides of the same town, both on multigenerational fruit farms. After venturing out to pursue higher education and other professions, they felt the strong pull back to their agricultural roots.  

CJ moved his family home to Reedley, where he planted his first citrus ranch and reconnected with the Kaprielians. He quickly grew fifteen acres into a hundred fifty and expanded to grapes and stone fruit, investing every penny back into the soil and revitalizing his family’s land.  

At the end of the 2016–17 winter season, the produce marketing company that managed the Kaprielians’ sales pulled out of the region. Bianca’s dad had fruit to move and called his daughter for help. Bianca teamed up with CJ to market their families’ fruit. They filled the packing shed with mandarins, sold them through, and never looked back. 

In 2017, Fruit World was officially founded to celebrate and carry on their family legacy of sustainable farming practices and good stewardship of the land.
