Original La Verne Orange Grove Open To Public



The city of La Verne has a small original orange grove with trees dating back to the 19th Century. The La Verne Heritage Foundation is opening it up this month for anyone who wants to pick oranges. It's $5 for a 5 pound bag.

The SGV Tribune has a great little write up on this event and it's history HERE.

The following info is directly from the LV Heritage Foundation:

"Enjoy a “Slice of La Verne ’s Past” while picking some of the best tasting oranges around. The Heritage Foundation offers you one of the last working orange groves in the area as a place to enjoy with your family. We supply the bags and pickers and are open Saturdays beginning January 9 th and continuing through approximately mid March. For more information call (909) 593-2862.

Days & Times: Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM"
