Righetti Avocado Farms

Righetti Avocado FarmsThe Righetti family farm specializes in growing Hass-variety avocados that it markets throughout the world. Righetti served several terms as a member of the California Avocado Commission and worked with other organizations to develop and promote avocado production and consumption.

In the late 1960s, Righetti began converting his family’s cattle ranch into an avocado farm. The family had grown the fruit on a small scale since the mid-1930s.

The Righetti family’s season usually runs from June to November, says David. The harvest time usually depends on the variety though, as commercial regulations require that avocados reach eight percent oil content before harvesting. Once the fruit is ready, it is picked by hand.

“We are well known for our Hass variety, but we have about 50 varieties of avocados on the ranch. Four of which we sell commercially.”—David Righetti

 

Grassy Bar Oyster Co.

Grassy Bar Oyster Co.Grassy Bars are delicious! Described as refreshingly briny, with an unmistakable taste of watermelon, our oysters are carefully raised in the southern reaches of Morro Bay where salt waters of the pacific meet the estuary. Daily tides bring cold, salty seawater into the bay giving our oysters a briny, robust and satisfying flavor.

Crooked Fox

Crooked FoxCrooked Fox is a tribute to those who trusted and were betrayed. Trust your instinct, it’s usually right.

Inside every bottle of Crooked Fox lies a well-balanced, unbelievably smooth blend of bourbon whiskies distilled and aged in two of America’s proudest whiskey making regions: Kentucky and Tennessee.

After carefully maturing in wooden casks, we go barrel by barrel, selecting the best tasting bourbons to create a whiskey with rich flavors of smoked maple, vanilla, nutmeg, oak, and malted barley with hints of rye. The result is a high quality whiskey that even the most sophisticated bourbon drinkers will appreciate.

Abalone Farm

Ocean Rose CMYK LogoEstablished in 1968, The Abalone Farm, Inc. is the oldest aquaculture facility of its kind in the country. The one product, the exquisite California Red Abalone, is produced at over 100 tons each year. This amount translates into approximately one million individual abalone ranging in shell length from 3” to 5” and ranging in age from 4 years to 6 years old. Once plentiful along the West Coast, abalone was harvested from the wild by the millions of tons in the early to mid 20 and increasing market demand, the wild abalone population was in danger of collapse by the late 1990’s. Since 1997 it has been illegal to commercially harvest abalone from the wild and sport diving has been severely restricted to only a narrow range of coastline. Abalone’s centuries of use in the Far East as a ceremonial dish and its growing popularity among gourmet diners around the world still drives a black market of illegally harvested wild abalone today. The danger of losing the
abalone is real. Sustainable, ocean friendly aquaculture can prevent the loss of this
unique treasure of the sea.
