Family tradition

Farming is in Elisabeth’s blood. Her family started cultivating the land over 100 years ago. Today, Elisabeth embodies the hard work, perseverance, and livelihood of the traction as a 6-generation cattle rancher. The Watkins Farm produces walnuts, almonds, peaches, cherries, hay and beef cattle.

P E A C H: The Watkins farm grows cling peaches. Cling peaches were named because characteristics of the fruit cause the flesh to stick to or “cling” the stone. Cling peaches are used for canning because they are firmer compared to freestones which are sold as a fresh market product.
