On The Oxnard Plain Since 1868, The McGraths have been farming on the coast of Southern California for five generations. The farmland is rich with the deepest topsoil and even richer in family traditions dating back to Dominick , the family patriarch. Our organic, regenerative and sustainable farm grows a high diversity of year-round organic fruits and vegetables for our community. The main ranch house was completed in 1879 off of Gonzales Road, one mile from the ocean in Oxnard. By the time Dominick had lived out his life, over 700 acres were acquired. But it was his four sons – Hugo, Robert, Frank and Joseph – who built the ranches to more than 5,000 acres between Ventura and Port Hueneme along the coast. It was in the draw of cards in 1948 when all the ranches were divided by the four sons.Joseph Dominick, ended up with the outer ranches: Camarillo, Montalvo, and the furthest portion of the Patterson Ranch, which is now the Channel Islands Marina. In 1971, the four siblings divided up their holdings, and it is where we now farm the two contiguous ranches in Camarillo that make-up, McGrath Family Farm. Our focus is on hand crafting wines that capture the essence of where they are sourced. Nestled amongst acres of organic crops in the heart of Camarillo, Public Domain is just minutes from The Camarillo Outlet Malls and The Oxnard Beaches.
