Held by the Middlecamp Family for many generations, the ravishing Middlecamp Ranch comprises 110± acres enveloped by the enchanting Edna Valley. Benefiting from panoramic views of the neighboring hillsides where cattle graze, vineyards, citrus, and avocado orchards grow, and wineries thrive, Edna Valley consists of a mix of both ranches and farms—large and small—and boasts breathtaking views of the Nine Sisters, a chain of mountains located in western San Luis Obispo County.
Middlecamp Ranch presents 2.6± acres of hobby orchards and 100± acres of grazing land. The Ranch is cross and perimeter fenced and includes a pole barn and bunkhouse.

Water is provided by two small agricultural wells and natural springs. The first well produces 10± gpm and is powered by a generator. The second well, located near the pole barn, produces 10± gpm powered with a 1.5-HP pump. Seller states there is a high boron content in the water and requires treatment to continue long-time irrigation.
Additionally, there is a large, state-licensed, diversion reservoir (48-acre feet at maximum capacity), of which the owner has 50 percent rights.
The wells and reservoir feed into two 10,000-gallon storage tanks, which then irrigate the orchard via drip system and fill the stock troughs.
The 100±-acres of grazing land are leased to a tenant on a short-term basis. The cow-calf operation runs 20 pairs and produces an income of $20 per head per month.
The 2.5± acre hobby orchard consists of olive trees (100± Arbequina), citrus, persimmons, figs, and plums. The orchard is watered by drip irrigation fed from the water storage tanks.
Middlecamp Ranch is improved with a 60’x30’ foot pole barn is a 10’x20’ unpermitted bunk house that was built about 10-15 years ago. Additionally, the ranch is cross and perimeter fenced and there are livestock water troughs scattered about the grazing land.
