Farmers: Lisa and Steve Pilz
Since 1927, Hillcrest Orchard has been farming mandarin oranges in Penryn, California. The citrus was primary crop until Lisa, of Lisa’s Petals and Produce, joined the farm in 2002, blending their businesses. Since then they have added a variety of produce and flowers, with near year round crops. They sell their crops at farmers markets and at their ranch.
Primary crops: mandarins, flowers, heirloom tomatoes, melons, winter squash and an array of summer vegetables
