La Familia Ranch
GD and Nell Spradlin


Welcome to La Familia!

This family-owned avocado and cattle ranch is nestled in the Central Coast's Los Osos Valley, a ten-minute drive from downtown San Luis Obispo, CA.

In addition to our famous annual pumpkin patch, we also host weddings and other private events. And our roadside produce barn is a convenient stop for commuters seeking seasonal estate-grown treats, such as Hass avocados, chanterelle mushrooms, and (new this year!) heirloom wheat products.

The 650-acre ranch was purchased by late actor GD Spradlin and his wife, Nell, in 1974. Soon after, they broke ground on their home, the hacienda, where the family frequently gathers for holidays and celebrations. Today their children and grandchildren continue the legacy of exploring the property's potential while maintaining the pastoral beauty that the couple fell in love with over forty years ago.
