Almonds, Figs, Walnuts & Vegetables
Motroni Ranch is an almond, fig, walnut, and vegetable farm in Esparto. Mike Motroni grew up on the farm. After a 30-year career in welding, Mike returned to the farm to raise vegetables. Mike began raising onions, a tradition lasting over 60 years in his family. His great-grandfather’s family grew red onions and saved seed year after year, crossing varieties and selecting seed only from the best onions. The onions he raises today are from that original seed, a sweet Italian red onion that is round and flat. Mike markets his produce locally in Woodland, Sacramento, and Vacaville, as well as from his farm stand at the Motroni Ranch and through Capay Valley Farm Shop.
