Where We Grow
About our Ventura and Soledad farms

Our avocados have plenty of room to breathe.
We grow most of our fruit in Santa Paula, California. Santa Paula is located in Ventura County between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. Our Gwen avocados are grown in Soledad, California. Soledad is located in Monterey County - 125 miles south of San Francisco.

Both areas host a predominantly coastal/Mediterranean climate which means that their close vicinities to the ocean stabilize temperature fluctuation. The result is no temperature extremes, which subtropical fruit trees love. For example, many of our tree types will sustain severe damage when subject to temperatures in the high 20s or lower for more than a few hours. Conversely, what we consider a heat wave causes avocados to drop prematurely; this fruit is unusable and left on the ground. Bummer!

We handle the picked fruit in Watsonville, California which is a central coast town in between Santa Cruz and Monterey. Having this facility streamlines our Farmers Market operation and is very close to Santa Cruz which I believe to be the avocado lover's capitol of the world.
