Shiraz Ranch - Newman:
Shiraz Ranch initially purchased 283 acres of citrus producing orchards
in Newman, and since then it has purchased and farmed more acreage (currently 535 acres). The original orchard was established by a physician, Dr. Freeman, who was in love with faming and spent most of the latter part of his life developing Newman citrus ranch. Arthur Navarro, the current manager of Newman Ranch, worked for Dr. Freeman from the onset.
The Newman orchard is the single largest Satsuma producing orchard in California. Two canals (California Aqueduct and Delta Mandota Canal) run through the Orchard, moderating the climate and source of water that originated in the Sierra Mountain range.
Due to its distance from other citrus producing orchards, it is immune to cross pollination and the Mandarin fruits remain seedless.
The quality of citrus fruits, due to factors described, is superb and has gained praise from customers (see testimonial).
