What We Grow & Make
Our core values guide us in how we conduct ourselves—personally and professionally. In this ever-changing world of agriculture, our core values are constant. They underlie our work, how we interact with each other and which strategies we employ to fulfill our mission.
We continue to develop our capacities. Even more variety of fruits, nuts will be grown and gathered in the nearest future. The total number of our livestock is also increasing.

Eat Some Real Fruit
Freshness and flavor are always the priority. If it doesn’t taste really good, we won’t sell it.
How It was
Arnett Farms was established in 1903 by great granddad, Louis Arnett. Three generations have passed, with the farm family-run for the last century. In the early years many different crops were cultivated, including vegetables and vine fruit
By the 1950’s Louise’s grandson had developed a passion for all things citrus and began mastering these California staples. The Home Ranch groves have provided naturally great soil and climate conditions for about thirty varieties of oranges, tangerines, mandarins, lemons, grapefruit and kumquats since the very beginning.
The new acreage prompted the addition of stone fruits to planting and harvest schedule. The combination of existing trees and these succulent new varieties of peaches, apricots, plums & pluots gave Arnett Farms a more varied and year-round harvest. Persimmons and jujubes were also added around this time. As great-grandson Scott took charge in the mid 90s, Arnett Farms now had a full spectrum of tree fruit and a new craftsman grafting, pruning and fine-tuning harvest cycles.
This half century process — of refining a year round harvest of the best suited tree fruits — created the basic foundation of crops and farming methods that are still in place today. From this handing down of land and skill, father to son, the Arnett Farms’ core philosophy also came to be: Treat the land with respect, use simple natural methods of production — while providing delicious and healthy family grown fruit to farmers’ market patrons.
Scott Arnett, owner, lives at the original Home Ranch and oversees general operations. He is a real country boy who likes to spend most of his time at the farm… unless he can get away for a quick fishing trip.
Secil Atalay, owner, oversees the entirety of the Southern California market operations. Secil teamed up with Scott and Arnett Farms in the early 2000s and takes care of farming practices, sales & marketing, expanding product and development, and of course, making sure everyone “enjoys their fruit!”
Both the citrus and the summer stone fruit is picked from six different nearby growing areas (adding up to about 240 acres) of Arnett Farms. This sounds like a lot of ground, even to us, but it is truly a small farm by modern standards. Most recently there has been the exciting addition of harvesting nuts at the farm. We welcomed pistachio, walnut and almond trees to the grounds, and welcomed making homemade nut butters into our repertoire!
