Orcutt Ranch continues its orange-picking events for the public.

Orange-Picking Time


Rec and Parks: After a year absence due to the pandemic, orange picking returns in July to Rec and Parks’ Orcutt Ranch in West Hills.

The program invites the public to pick oranges from the groves at Orcutt Ranch on select weekends.

Citrus Groves: Valencia oranges are plentiful at Orcutt Ranch. These trees were ready to be picked at the summer picking event a week after these photos were taken. White grapefruits are also grown here.

The next event is set for 7 a.m. to 1: 30 p.m. July 10-11 at Orcutt Ranch, 23600 Roscoe Blvd., West Hills.

The event is do-it-yourself. Fruit can be picked for $4 per average reusable bag or $5 for a medium fruit box. Pickers must bring their own containers. Tree climbing and ladders are prohibited.
