Loyal to Local
At The Elderwood, we want to be known for exceptional service, delicious food, and local ingredients.
Here’s a highlight of some of our local partners.
McKellar Family Farms
Robert McKellar, also known as Farmer Bob, owns and operates McKellar Family Farms in Ivanhoe, California.
Since the beginning of McKellar Family Farms, back in 1927, The McKellar Family has continued to grow 100 acres of multiple varieties of oranges, including a special Australian Variety of Naval that gets ripe in the Spring – so they have delicious oranges all year round.
Farmer Bob’s favorite thing about Farmer Bob’s World is the kids. McKellar Family Farms started the Farm Tours & Wagon Rides just for school kids, but now welcome visitors from all over the world. Farmer Bob says it’s always fun to have a group of kids on the farm. They are exciting and it’s very rewarding.
We asked Farmer Bob his favorite dish or drink that he makes with his oranges.
“We make an orange salad. It’s really simple. Black pepper, olive oil, sliced green onions and you mix it all up. You need about one orange per person for however big you want to make the salad.”
And drink? “Screwdriver. That’s my favorite to fix for people.”
McKellar Family Farms Oranges are featured in our Mimosas & Orange Juice on the Brunch Menu.
