The lemon has been giving us about a lemon a year for 4 years. This year we've just harvested one, and the tree has 3 others in various stages. The lime tree has set some tiny little fruit, but never kept them past that stage.

We have minimal problems with our pigs and chickens. Sheep and goats are another story. Parasites eat from within, and feral dogs / coyotes occasionally inflict cruel injuries despite a well charged perimeter fence.

That makes me think that it is indeed a pollination problem.
Tomatoes will easily self-pollinate. A little bit of wind or moving air is enough to get the pollen on the stamina (right word?) of the same blossom - that's why you often get less tomatoes in a greenhouse!
Not sure about peppers.
Have you ever seen pollinators on the blossoms? I can see my bees flying among the blossoms of the tomatillo.
And have you bought the plants or grown them from seeds?
