Harpos Organics is a family owned organic ranch in Ventura County, just across the river from Fillmore, in sunny Southern California. This ranch has been in the family since 1917 when my grandfather, Harold McFadden, settled in the Santa Clara River Valley in the community of Bardsdale. After I received an MS in Agriculture and 11 years of consulting and teaching sustainable agriculture and resource management, my wife and I decided it was time to apply our knowledge and interest to managing the family farm. We took over management in 2001, began farming without chemical fertilizers or pesticides,
and received organic certification in 2005.
We endeavor to enhance the ecological diversity of our farm by relying on nature to grow our cover crops, rejuvenating the soil and the many organisms that support healthy trees. We use water as conservatively as possible (subsurface drip) and use only natural predators to control pests. We are also developing natural habitat borders around the farm to harbor plants and animals that support a diverse ecosystem. We are located a stone's throw from the Santa Clara River and plan to help re-establish a fruitful and productive riparian habitat. We think you'll find our oranges, lemons and avocados to be among the best you've ever eaten. That is our guarantee.
We have our online store up and running for mail order organic oranges, lemons and avocados. Be sure to include your zip code when asked to calculate the shipping. Whenever possible please use a commercial address as this saves us $$ and helps keep out costs low. Thanks.
