Shade Farm
Local agriculture business has been family owned for generations
Rick Shade has spent nearly 60 years proudly growing avocados
and citrus in California and today runs nearly 800 acres in Santa
Barbara County-fueling his passion for being outdoors, planting
and working with the trees. As a young boy, Rick would tag along
with his grandfather, observing his work and his love of growing
trees and working the soil. That's when he says something " just
clicked " and he knew he was destined to do the same. It was from
his grandfather, where Rick learned everything he needed to know
about avocados.
Rick is a fifth generation farmer and third generation avocado
grower. His wife runs the office and acts as a " team mom. " Rick's
youngest son runs the tractors and servicing equipment. And, most
of his 12 employees of extended family have been with him for more
than five years, including his foreman who has been in the business
for 30 years.
Rick's proudest, most memorable moment as a California avocado
grower was the first harvest of fruit from the first block of trees that
he developed from bare ground. Each day, he invests his blood,
sweat and tears into growing his trees so he can leave a legacy and
tradition of caring for the land and reaping the rewards it brings him,
his family and employees today, and for the growers and their families
who will walk in his footsteps tomorrow.

I enjoy knowing that the trees I
plant may be around to feed
generations of people, " said Rick.
" We love what we do, and put care
into every piece of fruit we ship. "
