Meanwhile back at the ranch…episode 4

URBAN rANCHING WITH A SMALL ‘r’

Lest you think that we live on unbounded acres of land……although we technically are a ranch:  Webster’s definition: “a farm or ranchlike enterprise that raises a single crop or animal”, ours is definitely in the lower case.  We raise lemons and belong to a co-op which harvests and sells our crop.  Small and urban help to define who we are and what we do – we have limited acreage and are five minutes from the supermarket.  Once home, however, we feel as though we live in the country……….
