About Us: Steve and Lisa Pilz run the farm, which Steve’s Grandfather, Edmund Pilz, began. Ed began farming in 1927. He farmed many farms in this area. His favorite being Hillcrest. He chose this site as his home. Our farm sits on a beautiful hillside overlooking the Loomis Basin in the rolling hills of Placer County. On clear days you can see Mount Diablo to the Southwest! Hillcrest has seen many varieties of fruit trees come and go since 1927. The mandarin trees that Ed budded and planted back in the late 50’s still exist. About 7 acres of vegetables and flowers are also grown on our farm.
Products: Mandarins, limes, lemons (Meyer, Eureka, and Santa Teresa), oranges (Blood, Navel and Valencia), kumquats, grapefruit and pomegranates. Marinades, dressings, vinaigrettes and spreads produced from citrus that we grow.
