Family Owned and Operated since 1976
Welcome to our Family Farm! We are happy to meet you and invite you to get to know more about life on the Farm. We hope you will find this site as a respite from the busy world, where things slow down for a bit as we seek to embrace the simple things in life .. like family, healthy food, working together, natural surroundings, and a peaceful, open space.
We have been growers for Diamond Nuts for over 40 years. We are the southern-most growers in California and are proud to grow the highly desired variety of Chandler nuts (delicious!). Check out our recipe page.
We have a beautiful English Garden (carefully designed and planted with love by our mom) complete with wandering paths and lush delicate flowers.. Perfect photo location for Weddings, Family Gatherings, Senior Portraits. We are also listed on 101 North Locations for Film and Commercial shoots.
We have over 300 Christmas Trees planted here on the Farm, with the goal of being the only cut-and-carry tree farm in Santa Barbara County.We are happy to belong to the Christmas Tree Growers Association and hope to be open to the public in three to four years. (We may even have a reindeer or two!) Stay tuned.
The Farm has hosted several family weddings and receptions - a magical place. We are open to sharing our bounty with others interested in a small, romantic private event.
Contact us for more information.
Our Farm Stand is up and running and located at the entrance to the Farm. We have started off with complimentary citrus, such as Meyer Lemons, Grapefruits, and Oranges. We also have free flower bulbs for folks to plant in their gardens. As we move into summer we should have zucchini, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, and fresh eggs, as well as occasional baked goods. And of course in the fall we will have our wonderful Chandler Walnuts.
Perfect for Physical-Distancing - The ideal get-away from it all: Farm Stay in the walnut grove at a private site, nestled among the trees, sprinkled with lights and warmed by the campfire.

Walnuts offer a multitude of health benefits - in fact, by eating only seven whole walnuts a day you may begin to reap the rewards. Whether grabbing hand full of raw nuts, or roasting them for a savory salad - here are some of the many ways to add walnuts to your life.
This is a place for musings, memories, and other ramblings.
