Gathering avacados


Farmer David Schwabauer, a partner and manager of Leavens Ranches, a fourth-generation avocado and lemon grower, gathers avacados on the property in Moorpark, Calif., on June 3. The Schwabauer family has been considering allowing energy companies to drill new exploratory wells in its orchards in Moorpark, but the trees in Moorpark rely on irrigation from a depleted aquifer, and the county is already in drought.
