Sunset Ridge Fine Fruits is a family owned and operated organic farm, located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada’s. We specialize in citrus but also grow apples, plums, apricots, and Asian pears. Established in 1999, our family originally planted 2,000 Satsuma mandarin trees but have incorporated a variety of other fruit trees over the years including oranges, lemons, limes, wine grapes, and more. We are one the largest mandarin growers in our area and participate in the Mountain Mandarin Festival every year. At our ranch we have an on-site store where we sell produce, local products, and freshly squeezed mandarin juice. In addition, we offer informational tours, u-pick, and scavenger hunts for children of all ages.

As an intern, you will be involved in every aspect of production. In the field you will learn how to properly prune fruit trees, apply organic fertilizer and compost, treat pest infestations, control weeds, trellis grape vines, and maintain the irrigation system. This type of work is challenging but gets you in shape and out in the fresh air! At Sunset Ridge you will also learn how to make wine, harvest mandarins, and help sell produce in our store.
