Four Points Bulletin

Travels north, east, south, and west of our Oceanside home base.

Rancho Guejito is a 23,000 acre vineyard, farm and cattle ranch, located just a few miles past the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. It is one of the last remaining Mexican land grants that is still a single parcel of land. Originally 13,000 acres were granted by the Mexican governor to the owner, Customs Inspector and Justice of the Peace, José María Orozco. But over the years more land has been acquired, now there is only one other property between the San Diego Zoo Safari Park and the Cleveland National Forest. In one of the land purchases, a farmhouse built in the 1890s was added to the Rancho Guejito property. Between the bounce house, the hayrides and the wine, it is easy to lose an entire day to Rancho Guejito.
