  • Description

    Description

    We are a family farm in California's Central Valley. We are located a few miles north of the community of Hanford. Here in California's Central Valley it is the bread basket of the world. everything from almonds to zucchini is produced in the fertile region. On our farm we grow walnuts, almonds, pistachios, wheat, and corn. On the homestead there is various fruit trees and a vegetable garden. depending on the time of year we have farm animals as well. currently developing gourmet mushroom farming to incorporate to the business.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in the hub of California. (3 hours from San Francisco and the LA metro, 2 hours to Yosemite and the sierras, and 2 hours to the ocean and wine country. The train is available for travel anywhere along the coast and within the centrally valley region. It is very scenic here in California, and the hanford area is an agricultural landmine.

    We have a large home with a pool. We have everything you can desire in the center of town. shopping, theaters and concert venues all nearby.

    We speak a minimal of Spanish, but want to continue to improve.
