One of my favorite places in the entire world is the small self pick 5 acre organic family farm in Fallbrook that I’ve been lucky enough to spend endless sticky, sweet, scrumptious hours picking bags bursting with fruit over the past nine years.
Several months ago, my friend who was the care taker of this enchanting property, passed away suddenly.
The remaining family member has since shut off all the water to these glorious trees, and they’re now dying a slow death.
He has closed the farm to the public, and my favorite farm is drying up day by day behind an enormous padlocked gate.
I think the plans are to sell the property to a developer who will subdivide it, bulldoze all the trees and build houses.
The people who live there will never know what a magical place used to exist beneath their grassy lawns.
My friend George Emerich Jr. was a true inspiration and his death was very devastating to me. He was a plant wizard who could grow anything, and the farm flourished under his care.
He gave his entire life to taking care of his father’s beautiful fruit trees.
His beloved cat Salt, disappeared after his death and hasn’t come back.
I had hopes that this special farm would be sold to someone who would appreciate it, and give it the love and attention it needs to bring it back to it’s full glory.
Instead I fear it will just be another Forgotten Farm, torn down to make room for yet another subdivision.
This farm has hundreds of fruit trees, some over 100 years old.
An entire Cherimoya grove, an Orange & Tangerine orchard, Macadamia grove, plus a dazzling array of sub tropical rare exotic fruit trees.
Trees on the Farm:
White Sapotes (several different trees over 100 years old)
Black Sapotes (Chocolate Pudding fruit – 3 trees)
