News Update

The holiday bustle is a thing of the past and February is hot on the heels of January. With that comes lots of work at the Ranch including the annual tree trimming. Our Love by the Bundle program is a winter project and we will post information soon about how you can contribute.

If you are interested in events or weddings at the Ranch, please e-mail or call us for information. We will have our website up and running with lots of beautiful photos and more information just as soon as we figure out the current glitch (gotta love computers!).

We hope you are enjoying life on the Central Coast this winter! Lots of good things are happening to make our 2009 season the best ever so stay tuned!

All Good Things...

...must come to an end. Apple season is a good thing and this weekend is our last for the season! Come on out and stock up on Fuji, Braeburn, and Granny Smith, not to mention our fantastic cider. We have a few jars of tasty local honey left, too! If this is your first visit to the Ranch this fall, you will not be disappointed. Take a drive, enjoy the beauty of See Canyon, and see how many peacock you notice on your way to the Ranch!

If you are wondering what to do for a Thanksgiving dinner centerpiece, we still have pumpkins. The photo to the right is what was on our tables last year (yes tables is plural because we have a big family!). We used pictures from several generations of our extended family to fill each pumpkin. Not only did they look festive, they were great conversation starters and we could hear "remember when we did this?!" and "they've grown so much!" from several tables. Aunts and uncles were taking photos home at the end of the day and it was a wonderful way to share family memories and remind us how much we have to be grateful for in life.

We have loved every moment of the 2008 season and enjoyed old friends and new faces. Help us make this weekend our best yet or just stop by to say "so long, farewell" or just aloha!

Final Four

We like to think we've saved some of the best apples for our last few weeks of the season. The gorgeous, if not unseasonably warm weather, is perfect for a trip to the Ranch! We have four great varieties left so come get 'em while the getting's good!

  • Splendor (just a few left)
  • Fuji
  • Braeburn
  • Granny Smith (just a few left)

Our last day of the season is November 24th, just in time for Thanksgiving! Don't forget cider for your family and friends as you celebrate all we have to be thankful for this year.

We also still have pumpkins for decorating, local honey for baking and eating, and plenty of culls (aka seconds) for sauce, pies, and baking.

Several local artists have shared their work with us this season and we are blessed to bring you their painting and photography. These beautiful pieces make wonderful gifts and are year-round reminders of the beauty surrounding us at See Canyon Fruit Ranch.

Finally, stay tuned for off-season happenings at the Ranch!
