Sustainably Grown Avocado Orchards
Orchard Hills and Portola Springs are nestled among privately owned working avocado orchards that offer residents a connection to nature and Irvine’s ranching history, which dates back to the 1860s.
The orchards are operated by Irvine Valencia Growers (IVG), which has created one of the most sustainable, naturally driven agriculture operations of its size in Southern California.
IVG only grows avocados, which is intentional. Avocado trees are recognized as the hardiest and cleanest of all fruit species.
