Picking Grapefruit at Orcutt Ranch

Picking Grapefruit at Orcutt Ranch

Feb 14, 2016

Twice a year the Orcutt Ranch allows the public to pick fruit from the orchards. In January, SFV Granny and Mom gleaned several bags of grapefruit.
Early in July, a summer variety of oranges will be ripe for picking. This historic ranch (Rancho Sombra del Roble – Ranch in the Shade of the Oaks) was developed by an early oil tycoon and discoverer of La Brea Tar Pits.  You really get a glimpse of what SFV used to look like before the orchards and agriculture was smothered under tract homes.IMG_0317IMG_0322IMG_0327
