IVANHOE – Bob McKellar, owner of McKellar Family Farms and the popular venue, Seven Sycamores, recently returned from a Colorado-based business improvement “Destination Business Boot Camp,” where he learned hundreds of new methods to bring more customers and tourists to Ivanhoe and Tulare County at large. McKellar was among a group of business owners from across North America who attended the two and a half-day workshop.
McKellar Family Farms is the first agritourism farm from Central California ever to attend the camp. McKellar Family Farms is located in the heart of the Central Valley, just 41 miles from Sequoia National Park. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the farm provides visitors with an educational and interactive agricultural experience on its 182-acre citrus farm. Currently, McKellar Family Farms offers group wagon tours to thousands of tourists, school groups, and guests; giving them a behind-the-scenes look at life on a California citrus farm.
