    Ojai–Friends Ranch Tour Sat, April 19


    The Friend family and descendants have been growing fruit in Ojai since the 1880?s. We have been growing tangerines since the 1920?s! Our Sheldon Ranch, illness situated at the entrance to the Matilija Canyon, ampoule provides a unique frost-free microclimate which is perfect for tangerine flavor development. The ranch is surrounded by the Los Padres Forest and abuts the year-round flowing Ventura River. We think it is our prettiest ranch and we hope you can come visit!
