Yule Lake, Carpinteria – 6701 Casitas Pass Rd
Located on Highway 192 at the base of Shepherd Mesa, this forty acre farm sits on the richest alluvial soil in all of the Carpinteria Valley.

Francis Sedgwick willed this majestic six thousand acre ranch in the Santa Ynez Valley to UCSB. Tom was fortunate enough to obtain a long- term lease for Organic Agriculture from the University, and has planted over a hundred varieties of heirloom fruit. Peaches, plums, nectarines, apricots, cherries, apples and table grapes grow in an idyllic setting. Figueroa mountain makes a regal backdrop to the 40 acre parcel nestled in the Santa Ynez Mountains.
