When Limoneira Gives Us Lemons, We Make Salads, Pasta, and Muffins

122 YEARS AND STILL FRESH.

Limoneira, or “The Place of Lemons,” has been a leader in citrus farming for over a century. Today their focus on sustainability, solar energy and workforce housing is legendary. Not to mention their delicious lemons.

HOW DO YOU CREATE THE PERFECT LEMON?

On the Pacific coast, begin with an east/west valley. Add a generous helping of 300 days of sun. Sprinkle in a loamy, rich soil. Then add a pinch or two of pure rainwater. Wait, that’s Limoneira Ranch.

YOU’VE GOT TO HAND IT TO LIMONEIRA.

They do everything by hand. To determine ripeness, experienced Harvest Managers cut open lemons and taste them in the fields. Only then are they ready to be harvested by hand. Inside the historic packing house, the lemons are hand-selected for color and ripeness by expert fruit graders. When you’re Limoneira, it’s the only way to do it.

WE’RE LIMONEIRA AND LEMON CRAZY.

Guests enjoy 1.5 million lemons a year in our restaurants. Delivered 2-3 times a week. Chopped in our kitchen and squeezed fresh onto our salads and pastas in the restaurant. We don’t like lemons, we LOVE them.

I grew up in Santa Paula Calif where I picked lemons for a Limoneira ranch during summer vacation from High School. All of us did…
Terrific memories.
