A Family Harvest Tradition
Rancho Vasquez is a local family owned and operated business dating back three generations. Originally we harvested organic avocados to supply the Vasquez family restaurant. Since then we have grown into an approximately 100-acre organic avocado orchard in the foothills of Azusa, CA where the Vasquez family all reside together.
Still committed to family, and the orchard, harvest time is an event in the Vasquez household where every family member is involved – big and small. Depending on the season we harvest Hass, Fuerte and Lamb Hass avocados by hand, and deliver them to local restaurants and markets throughout Los Angeles.
Planting The Seeds
Art and Geri Vasquez are the proud owners of Rancho Vasquez. Art has been harvesting avocados since childhood. Art always had avocado trees in his yard and shared the passion of fruit growing with his children just as his father and grandfather had done with him. At one point or another all five of Art and Geri’s children have shared in the growth of the ranch. Today on the ranch, harvest time is a family affair. Art and Geri can be caught in the ranch with one or all of their 10 grandchildren, sharing the family tradition of organic fruit growing
Three Generations in the Making
Art and Geri’s third son, Vincent Vasquez is vice-president of the ranch. His cousin, Damien Vasquez is chief of operations. Together they attend to the daily operations and participate in every aspect of the ranch, from planting to harvesting to delivering the avocados. They are the arm in the trademark and the backbone of the ranch.
