Elegant Orange Ilex
Our orange ilex berries are a fall classic.  We grow these at our farm in rural Willow Creek, CA right next to the Trinity River. It is a stunning location for a stunning crop. I usually drive up to this farm, locally known as Gardner Ranch, on Saturday afternoons.  It is the perfect way to decompress and enjoy spending time at this stunning location.

Though these fields are busy during the week as our team picks and prunes, on Saturday afternoon, all you hear is the river flowing, the ilex bushes swaying in the dry autumn breeze, and if I'm lucky, the call of one of the bald eagles that frequents the river to fish for salmon.

The cell phone coverage here is terrible, certainly no wifi...  just nature. It is truly a step back to a simpler time. Our orange ilex embodies this spirit as well, timeless, enduring and elegant.

Get Hip
Every year we sell out of this popular crop. Our rosehips are solid red, and completely defoliated.

We anticipate having the crop well into December, however, as demand grows, supply goes down.
