Paul Illingworth

Owner

Paul has a Forestry degree from Northern Arizona University and has managed the farm for 46 years.  He took over ownership 16 years ago and says there is no place that he would rather be than working on the farm.  “It’s so beautiful out here and just a few miles from the city.” 

Alejandro Padilla

Farm Manager

Alejandro has worked on the farm for over 30 years.  He’s the one who does all the work to grow the trees.  He is an artist when it comes to shearing (shaping) the trees and takes great pride in getting the farm ready for the customers at Christmas time.  Because of his hard work a tree from the farm has won “Best Tree in California” for the last 5 years.
