    A wonderful tour of a fabulous facility on a beautiful day! The property alone is worth seeing: lovely grounds with offices in a 1920s Craftsman Tudor-style building framed by giant redwoods across from a Mission Revival-style packinghouse. Like a trip to bygone days...except this is a very busy, lively place. A highlight for me was going inside the packinghouse & seeing an abundance of lemons traveling along a series of conveyor belts for inspection, processing & packing. Throughout the morning, our excellent guide, Mary, provided lots of information about Limoneira, its energy conservation efforts, lemons & their growth & processing, with special acknowledgement of the people working in the field & packinghouse. We began our tour in the orchard, & the tour ended there as well, with an invitation to pick lemons, oranges & grapefruit to take home. A big thank you to Gerri for arranging this tour, to Mary for the terrific info, & to Limoneira for opening their doors to our Meetup group
