California Avocado season has ended.

Mike Sanders and Chris Ambuul

Bio

Mike entered the avocado business in the 70s. He says growing avocados has kept him young, and he has fond memories of raising his children on the farm. A few years ago, Mike persuaded his son–in–law, Chris, to leave the corporate world and join the avocado industry. Now the tradition continues as Chris and Mike’s daughter raise their children on the family farm. 

The Ambuul and Sanders families are passionate about avocados. These two cannot imagine doing anything else, and they see the benefits of working the land where your family lives.
