Pine Tree Ranch

Pine Tree Ranch is a 53 acre citrus and avocado orchard located in Santa Paula, California. It was donated to Cal poly by Carl Wasmendorf who wanted to see the Ranch continue as a fully functional orchard. In 1978, Cal Poly assumed the operation of the Ranch and began using it as an internship training program for students in the Fruit Industries program. Students from other majors, however, have also participated in this internship.

On this ranch site sits a 2700 square foot, two story home and a mobile home. Student interns are housed in the mobile home and the house is rented out to various tenants.

The Ranch currently consists of 30 acres of lemons and 15 acres of avocados. Both crops are currently highly productive and are lucrative sources of the Ranch's income. The remaining acreage is devoted to Valencia orange production.
