Community members come together to celebrate a legacy that began in 1893.


n Sept. 12, Limoneira celebrated more than a century of growing world-class citrus with an afternoon event held at its ranch in Santa Paula. Guests mingled in the rustically elegant setting and enjoyed cocktails, appetizers and a three-course buffet, along with the dulcet tones of noted crooner Luca Ellis. But the highlights, perhaps, were the chance to bowl on the famous bocce ball courts and sample cuisine featuring the company’s renowned produce, including Limoneira lemon bars and lemon meringue tarts.
