Shade Farm Management is owned and operated by fifth and sixth generation California farmers Rick, Trish and CJ Shade. The Shade family has been farming in California prior to the Gold Rush until today. The family has a heritage of citrus and avocado farming for several generations and nearly seventy years on the South Coast of Santa Barbara County. We specialize in citrus and avocado farming with services ranging from pre purchase due diligence investigations to orchard development and redevelopment, long term management, production consultation and expert witness services.
