Butte County APN#:  025-180-045

There are 176 planted acres.  The balance of the property is comprised of riparian land along the Feather River and roads & ditches.

The orchard is chandlers on black walnut rootstock planted in the 1980’s on a 26 x 26 spacing.

It’s 5-year yield history is as follows: 2018; 925,860lbs (5,260lbs per acre) 2019; 949,160 (5,392lbs per acre) 2020; 939,180lbs (5,336.25lbs per acre) 2021; 748,080 (4,250lbs per acre) 2022; 715,120lbs (4,063lbs per acre) 2023; 869,120 lbs (4,938lbs per acre)

The orchard is in excellent condition.  In 2021 there was a storm in October in excess of 5 inches where a portion of the crop washed away.  In 2022 there was an April frost that contributed to a slightly smaller crop.

The entire farm is comprised of primarily Class II Soils. Please review the attached soils map for more information.

The orchard irrigates in 4 sets by a well with a VFD & Filter Station.

The orchard is in Butte Water District.  There is a pipeline from a Butter Water District turnout to a sand media filter station.  The current owners haven’t used this system for 20+ years    because the well is pulling water from 25-30 feet and has provided an economical & reliable water source.
