Our family owned orchard is located between Chico and Durham in Northern California. We moved to Chico in 1989 to pursue our passion for water skiing. Our house was built on a man-made ski lake surrounded by almond, walnut and olive orchards. The health benefits of pomegranates intrigued us, so in 2006, we planted our orchard on 20 acres behind our home.
We began making pomegranate products in October 2009 after we harvested over 150,000 pomegranates and decided with the short fresh market season, we would extend the enjoyment of this wonderful fruit by making products with our fresh squeezed juice.
Skylake Ranch Pomegranate Products consists of: The owner, Gail Brown, her son Chris Brown, operations manager and his wife Sarah, the taste creator. Sarah and Gail created the wonderful recipes you see on this website.
After learning about the tenderizing quality of the juice from Middle Eastern cooking, we developed the marinade and our very popular Balsamic Grill Sauce. Then our creativity in the kitchen helped us develop more pomegranate products such as the fruit spread, grenadine and syrup.
