Rich Soil. Rich History.
Located just over an hour outside of Los Angeles, Flying D Ranch commands 1,281 acres including a 1950s Austin Pierpoint architectural home in addition to three ranch-hand homes, a barn and 145 profitable acres of Haas avocado and Lisbon lemon orchards. Teaming with horses, cattle and birds, the ranch is an open air paradise with expansive views of the ocean, and country views of Nordhoff Peak and the Ojai Bluffs.
Tucked away in a peaceful canyon setting, the ranch is just minutes from the historic town of Santa Paula, the site of many films, and 16 miles from Ojai, a destination within Ventura County. Originally acquired in the 1920s by a family of aviators, the ranch retains a rich aeronautical history—a legacy tied to the Santa Paula Airport and local Aviation Museum.
Aside from its agricultural operation and significant development and water rights, the possibilities for the ranch and acreage are endless. The topography is diverse allowing for a multitude of uses such as a dude ranch, a housing development, a golf resort, a series of luxury ranchettes or vineyards. Come home to the idyllic ranch lifestyle at Flying D Ranch.
