After purchasing 1,826 acres of land, Hart and Torrance planted citrus groves

Hart and Torrance purchased 1,826 acres of land for the purpose of selling it to family members and cousins. They then used the money from this sale to plant citrus groves.

The Hart-Torrance Company has been making a lot of progress in the City of Hacienda Heights since they bought 1,826 acres of land in the unincorporated community. They planted citrus trees with their own production costs releasing the profit all on their own.

In 1884, Hart and Torrance purchased a 1,826-acre parcel of land from the Mexican government in Los Angeles County for $200. This acquisition marked the beginning of Hacienda Heights, which was incorporated into the City of La Verne in 1945.

The first tree fruit harvested on the ranch was a white navel orange that weighed more than five pounds. The citrus groves spread over 5,000 acres and were regarded as one of the best in California.

Many of the citrus groves planted in the 19th century have since been replaced by subdivisions, shopping centers, and oil refineries. However, after an influx of people from California and Asia over the past few decades, this little-known city near LA is slowly becoming a big player in fruit cultivation.

Hacienda Heights is prospering with an influx of Asian immigrants who have come to taste its fresh produce. In addition to food production, Hacienda Heights has many other business opportunities that draw immigrants looking for employment opportunities in this region.

Hart and Torrance are the founders of Hacienda Heights. Hacienda Heights, formerly a unincorporated community, has become one of the most widely-known neighborhoods in Los Angeles County.

Hart and Torrance saw the area as an opportunity for citrus groves. They planted thousands of trees around 1,826 acres of land and sold them to produce companies from around the world.

Sure enough, these two men saw incredible success with their lemon groves in this otherwise undeveloped part of Los Angeles County.

In 1886, Hacienda Heights was established and became the first unincorporated community in the county. In 1887, Hart and Torrance planted a citrus grove on part of the property.

In recent years, Los Angeles County has seen a resurgence of agriculture because of rising food costs. In 2020, the county is expected to produce 10.3 million pounds of citrus and nearly 5.2 million pounds of strawberries.

The purchase by Hart and Torrance in 2019 for 1,826 acres is a sign that this trend will continue looking into the future. Currently, the agricultural industry generates over $56 billion in revenue per year and if this trend continues it could create new business opportunities for Los Angeles County farmers in particular because of its proximity to Southern California cities such as Long Beach or Riverside who have both seen an influx of residents due to climate change.

The purchase by Hart and Torrance was one of many recent land purchases by farmers across Los Angeles county as they expand agricultural land due to increasing food prices where farmers can grow crops year round and be closer to consumers who are willing to pay more for fresh fruits and vegetables.
