Zava Ranch avocados are grown in the rich soil of California, warmed by its sunshine and cooled by gentle coastal breezes.

 Zava Ranch is a family-owned sustainable organic orchard in California, specializing in growing organic citrus, avocados, herbs, and succulents on 20 acres in Somis, Ventura County, Southern California, USA.
To Zava Ranch "The goal of sustainable agriculture is to meet society’s needs in the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."

Avocados are unique in that they ripen once they’re off the tree.
At this point, the thing is rock hard. You can practically use it as a pestle for your mortar, or even a weapon for self-defense. Have you ever dropped an unripe avocado on your toes? Oy, it’s not pleasant. You can speed up the ripening process by placing your avocados in a paper bag, which helps them ripen sooner by trapping the natural off-gas that they generate (an odorless, tasteless, active plant hormone called ethylene).

Avocados are climacteric fruits (right up there with apples and bananas), meaning they start to ripen off the tree through a process of ethylene production, which occurs when starch converts to sugar. This stage of climacteric signals the peak of ripeness for an avocado.

If you want to speed it up even more, you can stick an apple or banana inside the bag (or any other ethylene-producing fruit, such as peppers, peaches, tomatoes… whatever you have on hand).

What does it mean to be sustainable organic orchard?

Sustainability:

The goal of sustainable agriculture is to meet society’s needs in the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

For this reason practitioners of sustainable agriculture seek to integrate three main objectives into their work:

  1. a healthy environment
  2. economic profitability
  3. social and economic equity

We encourage you to learn more about sustainable agriculture.

Organic Farming:

“Organically grown” food is food grown and processed using no synthetic fertilizers or pesticides.

Instead of relying on chemicals, Organic Farming relies on natural principles like biodiversity and composting to produce healthy, abundant food.

Ethical Cultivation:

We are committed to ethical cultivation of our crops and partnering with nature to grow and harvest the most nutritious, delicious, and healing foods that our land is willing to share with us.

We work with nature and follow its lead. 

California has many different microclimates. Our land gifts us fields of rosemary, sage, oregano, lavender, roses, geranium, hibiscus, and succulents. With some additional irrigation, it produces an abundance of lemons, limes, oranges, tangerines, grapefruit, and avocados.

We are constantly amazed how many medicinal and healing plants grow on this land that might appear to the naked eye to be dry and infertile.

Shortening the Path:

We are on a mission to shorten the path from the land to your table by shipping directly to you on the same day that we harvest.

When we get your order, we go out into the fields, harvest, pack, and ship via Fedex Priority Mail, shortening the journey to 2-3 business days and ensuring that you reap the most nutrients and healing benefits from the foods you enjoy.

Most plants are seasonal. To ensure year-round supply we are currently developing dried (dehydrated) fruit, herbs, essential oils, and teas, so that you can continue to enjoy the health benefits and the great taste at any time of year.

We harvest at the peak of ripeness and dehydrate/preserve/process the harvest on the same day to lock in the nutrients.
