PASTURES AND VINEYARDS

The farms, pastures, orchards and vineyards of California's central coast are productive lands full of natural beauty.

In the springtime, the hills of California shift quickly from the new greens sprouted by winter rains to the golden browns and later reds that cover the hills throughout the hot, dry summer and fall. Powerful Live Oaks are scattered across the vast fields, and in springtime wild lupine and poppies add color to the slopes. All these natural changes and colors are background for and reflected on the bountiful lands where our foods are grown.
