The large scale walnut production on Rancho La Viña started around 1920. From 1920 until the mid to late 40's, we hand harvested,
hand hulled, and sun dried the nuts. We still hear stories from locals who recall earning a wage per bag by hand harvesting our walnuts each fall. Many others who have enjoyed over the years the picturesque orchards just off the road that winds along the Santa Rita Hills between Lompoc and Buellton. Today we have 126 acres of Certified Organic Walnut trees that yield some of the sweetest, best tasting walnuts grown in California.
