Fires in the Fields!

Our Apple trees have been in decline during the last few years due a blight. And due to the fires in 2020 many of our Cherry orchards were destroyed are currently being devastated and eaten by deer, crows, squirrels, mice, and gophers.

Our Academy, along with our with volunteers, maintain approximately 25 acres using historical organic practices. Pesticides, fertilizers, and other harsh chemicals have only been invented in the recent era and were unknown to the pioneers.

If you would like to pick some great fruit go to our sister company Riley’s Ranch in Oak Glen.
