Where We are

The Morning Star Ranch 

12458 Keys Creek Road
Valley Center, CA 92082
(760) 742-8953 

The entrance of the Morning Star Ranch is lined with palm trees, leading you through the persimmon orchard where the cows graze, past the goats and chickens to our red barn-shaped houses where you will find us busily cleaning, cooking, sewing, teaching our children and watching the little ones, and washing the dishes.

The road continues up the steep hill, into the avocado grove where you will find the men working together under the trees, in our six-acre organic garden, or in the packing house sorting fruit for the market. You will find people from many different backgrounds and nationalities here sharing our home, all serving the same God with the same faith, in lasting friendships. In this new life the cultural barriers are being broken down. As the long-established cultures of the Earth are being left behind for the self-gratification of “Western culture,” a brand new culture is emerging.

You can drop by for Friday night when we end our working week by bringing in the Sabbath with a festive meal, Israeli folk dancing and singing with our whole hearts to the One who made us. Or come as a willing worker (a WOOFER). The gates of Morning Star Ranch are always open.

The hardworking farmers there would love to share their insights into this abundant life we have found. Please come and see us! We are located in Southern California east of Oceanside off of I-15, about two hours south of Los Angeles or 45 minutes north of San Diego.
