Wow! It’s a tulip explosion thanks to McGinnis Ranch
According to the CUESA website, Howard McGinnis started farming in 1968 and is now mentoring his daughter, Sandi, and granddaughter, Sara, who plan to go all organic this year. They grow a variety of berries as well as broccoli, carrots, fava and green beans. And, of course, flowers, like the fabulous tulips pictured here.
One distinct feature of the 17.5 acre ranch is its steep slope — a 12% grade. With heavy rains, the soil washes down the hill. But the grade also allows maximum sun exposure and extends the farm’s season significantly.
