PEAR ORCHARDS by Mid Century

Early machinery on the Johnson Family Ranch. Farmers in the Ukiah valley began growing Bartlett pears and other types of pears.

ToDAY

Today the fifth and sixth generations of Johnson Family Ranch, Inc. are tilling the soil and personally overseeing every facet of the farming and packing operation. Working together, we Johnsons provide our customers with the very finest grapes and pears.
