Santa Barbara Pistachio Company in Ventucopa
I went to Ventucopa several weeks ago to visit artist Mineko Grimmer and her husband John, who on the weekends, go to their studio near the Los Padre National forrest. On my way home, John recommended I stop by the Santa Barbara Pistachio Company, which recently got a write up in the Wall Street Journal as an upcoming company to watch. The fields of farms along with the desert forest makes Ventucopa really wonderful. The shop is modest and everyone is welcoming. I bought four bags, two hickory and two garlic. They make for excellent gifts and my kids really loved them.
