Laraneta Family Photos

Here are some family photos. They are a bit disorganized - as some photo collections are. Laraneta is a family business so we thought you'd like to meet the family.

Melinda on the tractor attacking the weeds before planting of the grapes in, Spring 1999. Honey Oak House is in the background on the left.
Joe on the tractor in Spring, 1999, perparing ground for the planting of the olive trees. You can see the old Eucalyptis Trees that once lined the drive and the newly staked rows are in the background.
