Sustainability Update
Luckily for all of us, since 1893, Limoneira has had the long-term vision to create safe practices that would take best care of the environment while making citrus operations sustainable and efficient with natural resources. In fact, the founders helped lay the groundwork for many practices we see across California today, including pioneering efficient water techniques and responsible water practices that acted as a leader for all of Ventura County. Plus, in 1917, Limoneira Company was one of the founders of the Integrated Pest Management Program here, too, which is the successful practice that minimized pesticides by releasing beneficial insects into the orchards.

These and other innovations in sustainability have made Limoneira a leading environmentally focused agricultural company, all of which has made us so well-respected across the world. Not to mention so loved for our delicious lemons, avocados, oranges, and specialty citrus!

Featured Recipe of the Month
Who likes π? Or, should we say PIE? Whether you celebrate PI - or PIE, we have a recipe that you must try on March 14th! This MEYER LEMON pie uses the whole fruit of the Meyer lemon, including the rind, which gives it a full flavor that ranges from sweet to tangy and back. The key is to prepare the filling by letting the Meyer lemon and sugar macerate overnight. This Shaker-style pie is delicious with whipped cream and strong coffee or tea. Check it out here!

Last but not Least!
Limoneira is comprised of a family of passionate people, and we are wishing a happy retirement to Kathleen Thompson, who was hired in 1998 and became HR Manager in 2002. She is retiring after 23 years of service and with distinction as Vice President of Human Resources. We will miss her and so appreciate her long dedication to our team!

We are in luck, however, to have Debra Walker stepping into this role; and after serving as Human Resources Manager and General Manager of Yuma Operations for Limoneira for the last seven years, we know she will do great things for our company. 
and may you have a lot of luck (and Limoneira!) ‘til then!
