Dan and Bar­bara O’Connell have been farm­ing for 30+ years along the scenic Sacra­mento River in Colusa, California.

O’Connell Ranch is a fam­ily farm­ing and cat­tle ranch oper­a­tion that proudly grows an assort­ment of beau­ti­ful, sea­sonal, locally grown, high qual­ity fruits includ­ing: Fuyu Per­sim­mons, Asian Pears, Yel­low and White Peaches, Yel­low and White Nec­tarines, Plu­ots and Euro­pean Pear vari­eties (includ­ing Taylor’s Gold).

The ranch fea­tures a “FRESH” pro­duce stand, “ Barb’s Pro­duce” where pre-​school classes, 4-​H Clubs and adult groups enjoy learn­ing the impor­tant lessons of a real work­ing fam­ily ranch.
