We Are Excited to See You
Our Family orchards were once a part of a 30 acre parcel producing fruit on the edge of the 1890's-1940's "Fruit Basket of America" in the beautiful Sierra Foothills town of Newcastle, California. The parcel was divided in 1973 and our family purchased the middle acreage that included the fruit packing shed, home and 10 acres of fruit trees and pasture. Though many of the trees were past their prime or succumb to disease by then, the persimmon trees ( both Fuyu and Hachyia), pears and citrus were and still are thriving. We are now re-establishing our orchards with a healthy, sustainable and soil restorative method and hope to have new producers in a couple of years. But for now, we are selling products made of the sweet fruit from our old timers.
Persimmons , known as the
"Fruit of the Gods" in Ancient Greece are praised for their super sweet fruit when ripe. They have many properties including anti-oxidants, Vitamin A, C & K and are a fat free healthy carbohydrate. The trees naturally defend themselves from pests, so no spraying is needed. We sell products from Chocolate Fuyu and Hachyia varieties. We also grow figs, wild Sierra plums, pears, quince and berries (currently blackberry & strawberries) for jams and fruit leather rolls. And we couldn't do without our visiting Bees. Persimmon and fruit products along with our local honey are for sale in our Lean To Cottage Shop online or in person (see upcoming events for locations).
BOOK YOUR EVENT HERE
After celebrating the wedding of my beautiful daughter and her now husband on the hill top setting of HHO, many have asked us about having small events on our site. We have hosted birthday parties, family dinners and house concerts.
The Flora and Fauna of our Orchards are the perfect setting for any outdoor event be it a Wedding, Family Gathering, Music Concert, Retreat or Agricultural Education Outing for Kids of all ages (we even include visits with the Chickens, Goats, Sheep & Donkeys).
Our new "Obelisk Tea Garden" will be opening summer of 2022 with a Straw Bale vegetable garden and native plants and flowers. A restful place to have a "Tea or Birthday Party" with friends or family.
We can only accommodate a limited amount of events per year so book early.
