Summer is on its way, and our Nellie Gail Ranch fruit trees are heavy with fruit and ripe for the picking!! Let’s put our excess fruit and vegetables to a good purpose and donate these to families less fortunate.

Nellie Gail Ranch has launched Harvest for Hope. A weekly food drive to benefit the patrons of Family Assistance Ministries in San Clemente. In addition to the citrus from our trees and any excess vegetable crops you may have, FAM is also in need of:

  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned Fruit
  • Rice & Pasta
  • Spaghetti Sauce
  • Shelf Stable Liquids
  • Feminine Products
  • Baby Wipes
  • Paper Towels
  • Toiletries
  • Empty Egg Cartons

If you are unable to pick and drop off your food and need assistance, please click HERE to fill out our assistance form. One of our volunteers will coordinate a day and time to assist you.


In compliance with the Governor’s directive regarding large gatherings, we have canceled the first concert in the Summer Concert Series.

We will keep everyone updated regarding all future events via the website and weekly email blast as this situation unfolds.

Our Horse-O-Ween event was held last Saturday at the Equestrian Center.  We enjoyed our riders in costumes, rode through a fun obstacle course and played some fun games. Thank you to Lion’s Heart who provided us with some youth volunteers to set up and take down the decorations.  Thank you also to all who attended.  Lastly, we hope all of our Nellie Gail Ranch families enjoyed a safe and fun Halloween evening last night!
