The Limoneira Company
Windfall Farms is a 700+ acre farm owned by The Limoneira Company founded in Ventura County in 1893. Its founders were pioneers of spirit and vision that helped lay the foundations of a thriving California citrus industry. Their dedication and innovation in the agricultural industry helped found and develop many institutions that still exist (Sunkist Growers, Fruit Growers Supply and Diamond Walnut).
The company was named Limoneira, meaning lemon lands in Portuguese. The primary crops were lemons, Valencia oranges, and walnuts at that time.
Limoneira Company entered the new century with a growing workforce and prosperity. The employment of C.C. Teague as the first General Manager in 1901 had a lasting impact on the development and success of the company. Teague’s leadership and innovation set the standards for farming practices. C.C. Teague went on to become Chairman of Sunkist and founded many organizations including Diamond Walnut.
Today, Limoneira has grown to become one of the premier integrated agribusinesses in the world. Limoneira is a dedicated sustainability company with 15,400 acres of rich agricultural lands, real estate properties, and water rights in California, Arizona, Chile and Argentina.
Limoneira expanded their sustainable agribusiness to Paso Robles in the late 2000's. Since 2013 Windfall Farms has planted over 326 acres of grapes, replacing the hundreds of acres of alfalfa reducing water irrigation by more than three to one. Windfall Farms is currently growing several wine grape varietals including Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache Noir, Grenache Blanc, Mourvedre, Petit Verdot, and Petite Sirah. The grapes are sold to winemakers from Edna Valley to Napa! Several wineries will be pouring Windfall Farms grown grapes at the Derby Day Wine Festival, too!
