We are CCOF certified organic walnut orchards, totaling 57 acres. Each season we hand pick well over 1,000 walnut trees. The trees in our orchards are planted as far as 60ft apart and we’re aloud to grow very large. Our home orchard is located on Highland Springs and the Kelseyville orchards are on Mt. Konocti. The Konocti orchards were planted as early as 1916 and the home orchard was planted in 1926 by Poe/Hendricks. The orchards have been dry farmed for nearly 100 yrs. All hand picked, we farm one of the last remaining Poe walnut orchards on earth.
We have expanded our farm featuring fresh produce and plant starts, find us at Lake County Farmers Markets or email about available produce!
We are also expanding our farm to an onsite Air BnB barn room and Glamping options on Mt Konocti coming soon! Stay at Glamp Konocti soon!
