"It’s part of our family. It’s not just a business operation.” -Mike Seley
Founded in 1957, by the late Hal Seley, the family is now entering its fourth generation of growers, and a half-century of family farming. Over the years, Seley Ranches has developed a reputation for quality citrus and a loyal customer following; ranging from the annual patrons of our produce stand to the selective markets of Japan, Europe and Australia.
the Anza-Borrego Valley provides some of the nations most impressive natural desert terrain, as well as the ideal growing conditions for citrus.
The surrounding mountain ranges, with peaks of over 6,200 feet (6,000 feet above the desert floor), create an ideal micro-climate; sun and warm temperatures, and protection from weather and pests.
Additionally, these ranges capture moisture from Pacific storms, supporting over fifteen year-round springs that feed the desert aquifer below. This combination of microclimate, deep, well-drawn water and sandy desert soil provide the perfect conditions for a healthy desert citrus orchard.
