We love to work our hands into rich, fertile soil. There are few things more satisfying then harvesting a green bounty moments from your front door step. When we moved to the franch we inherited a modest citrus and avocado grove. The trees were laden with fruit, and we are learning to make the most of our colorful bounty. We are in the midst of collecting the Big O Franch produce bounty!
As operations on the Big O Franch mature, we will add year-round gardens and berry patches. For now, we are up to our elbows in citrus. As San Diego Franchers we have the perfect climate for growing a wonderful assortment of delicious fruits and vegetables. Currently, our gardening expertise allows us to grow large abundant gophers, but as we become skilled at our craft we hope to offer more fresh produce for sale!
We are learning to make marmalade, dried lemons, salted lemons, and limoncello. Lemon curd is next on the hit list. This summer we grew Blue Hopi Corn, and had amazing results! We dried the corn on the ears.
