Richard Pidduck is a quiet man who would rather talk about avocados than himself. Despite some very tough setbacks due to the weather, he remains passionate about farming the land where he lives in Santa Paula. He has two sons, Will and Nate, who also work in the avocado business. Richard’s wife Gail is an artist who depicts farm life and has a studio on the farm.
