Event Announcement: Agnew Sweet Acres Farm Tour

Come join us for our first farm tour of the year at Agnew Sweet Acres Farm in Lindsay, California. Some of you who shop the Hollywood Farmers’ Market or the Saturday Pasadena Market in Victory Park may be familiar with Mike Agnew, who grows some of the very best naval oranges you can find. We will be meeting Mike at his farm for a tour, then to pick all the oranges you want, and a picnic. If we are lucky, there may even be a few wildflowers still around.

For those of you who have the time there are also the Painted Murals in Lindsay (2 miles south of Ranch) and Exeter (about 4.5 miles northwest of Ranch) For further info go to the California Heartland site and to the Linday Mural Photo Gallery.
