Sustainable Farming

Nurturing the land as well as our fruit

Good food grown right

Starr Ranch Growers cares about the ecosystems that our orchards call home. Thanks to our advanced, non-invasive farming practices, we are proud leaders in the industry for sustainable farming. By utilizing cutting-edge drip irrigation systems and eco-friendly pest management methods, Starr Ranch Growers has kept good on its promise to create a sustainable environment for generations to come.

Caring for our crops

We nurture our orchards with careful hands. Thanks to our unmatched levels of expertise, attention, and passion, our trees are capable of yielding more fruit and thriving much longer. We also utilize high-density planting methods and maximize foliage usage, production, and quality.

Our Social Responsibility

From the very beginning, Starr Ranch has been dedicated to serving more than just our customers. We’re also committed to our employees, our community, and the planet. We focus on three areas of responsibility for our program initiatives:

Giving back is in our nature. Our founder emphasized the importance of giving back to the community, and it’s a tradition we’ve carried on for over 85 years now.

Water conservation

Starr Ranch Growers is dedicated to conserving one of our most precious resources – water. We use advanced technology to measure soil moisture, which allows us to adjust water levels and schedules with precision. Starr Ranch Growers also utilizes micro-irrigation fan jets to distribute water more evenly and prevents wasteful water usage.

Protecting our soil

Well-loved soil has been key to Starr Ranch Growers’ success. To ensure that our crops have the optimal environment to grow and thrive, we conduct laboratory testing on our soil and foliage to determine if there are any nutritional deficiencies. We carefully manage the field’s health, and to prevent over-treating our soil we use pest and disease-resistant rootstocks.
