Manas Ranch of Esparto, California for "The Best Peaches in the West!"

The Best Peaches in the West Are Found at Manas Ranch in Esparto, California

We accept orders by Phone, (530) 787-3228, and ship peaches anywhere in the country, including Hawaii.

Graded Peaches

The huge farm store window lets customers watch peaches being graded into first and second quality, and "soft."

First quality peaches are perfect and cosmetically free of blemishes.

Second quality has minor blemishes, but look and taste the same once the skin is removed.

"Soft" peaches are usually slightly overripe or bruised, and are the least expensive. They are very popular with customers for cooking or making jam.

We also will be happy to help you learn how to ripen and store your purchase.

We do not like to see food go to waste, and peaches not sold are donated to Yolo County Food Bank and Monroe Detention Center.

Farm Fresh Fruits & Vegetables

We have 30 acres of fresh market apricots, peaches, and cherries, plus all your favorite fresh local produce: tomatoes, peppers, onions, nuts, honey, and much more. Be sure, too, to take home some of our homemade jams and toppings - especially the "Triple Berry".
