Welcome to our family farm. Rancho Durazno means "Peach Farm" in Spanish. Pretty straight forward, but hard to spell and pronounce, so our farm is called "The Cameron Place." Cameron because it's the name we share, Place because it's more than an orchard, more than a farm. We are surrounded by wild lands, desert cliffs and slopes no one should farm. They are part of every view, and define the place we live and farm, and make this one of the best sites in a valley famous for its peaches.
