Diving at 60 – by Richard Lentz

The underwater photographs appearing throughout the Seagate World blog were taken by me.   I have been diving for over 40 years.  I am now 60 years old, and have a healthy case of denial. While diving at this the age is today’s topic, the real message is that it is possible to continue to do […]

Sally Bartle - My son is 22 and just received his diving certification. Due to the fact that we take many of your supplements and eat mostly healthy food and exercise, I’m sure he will be diving until he is a very old man! BTW, you are 60 years young!

Mexico’s Presidential Elections – coming soon on July 1st

Whoever wins, the Mexican people always lose Excitement is growing in Mexico again as the July 1 election date approaches for this country to choose a new president. One good rule that the U.S. could learn from is that the Mexican presidents and other major office holders like Governors cannot run for consecutive terms. So […]

Robin - Richard,

I so enjoyed reading all of the history and information about Seagate. Your products are my favorite. I know that they are pure and what they claim to be. It was great to see how everything is grown and made.

I also loved the Mexico history and pix. I took many trips to Bahia de los Angeles in the 80’s. So nice to relive a little Mexico.

Thank you for making such great products. Your integrity and your products are very much appreciated.

Please stay safe down there. You seem to love it!

Artichokes

  That fellow flying by the Seagate farm is not an artichoke, just a seagull flying inland.  While most people encounter these birds along the coast, following fishing boats or scavenging garbage, many of the different species of seagulls inhabiting Southern California nest inland. Seagate is very close to adding artichokes to its product list. […]

Robert Lauder - Thanks for putting up this blog! I’m in the Alentejo region of Portugal (which I have referred to in the past as Europe’s Baja California) and it’s nice to see clear photos and explanations of what you do. Bom trabalho!

Seagate becomes a farmer in 1997

Seagate began operations in 1981 as a fishing company and specialty seafood processor in Baja California with a small office and a leased cold storage located in San Diego. By 1993, Seagate ventured into the health food industry by processing the shark cartilage that was a byproduct of their filleting operations, a raw material that […]

Powder Grinding

After last week’s blog (scroll down below) about prostitution, drug trafficking, and tacos in Tijuana, this week it is back to business with a discussion about how Seagate pulverizes freeze-dried raw materials into powder.  First, some local news- April 27th marked the date of the annual Newport (CA) to Ensenada yacht race. The two sailboats […]

Tijuana

This blog is about Seagate’s World, the people and scenery in this very picturesque region where Seagate’s factory is based, which is actually in Ensenada, Baja California … not Tijuana. In order to reach Ensenada by road, a beautiful seaside community along the Pacific coast 100 miles south of San Diego, you must first pass […]

Sharon Miller - As ever, your pictures are beautiful. Way to go Richard.

The Freeze-Drying Process

    The concept of freeze-drying is simple —  the evaporation of water directly from ice.     However, the machinery and controls to accomplish freeze-drying are very expensive and challenging. Most of the 20 raw materials that Seagate processes are freeze-dried in the Ensenada factory. This method very gently removes the water, leaving the […]

The Mexican Border

  (Tijuana side of the border fence)   This photo of the very shaky border fence separating the U.S. and Mexico is located 3 miles from the southwestern edge of the continental U.S., where the fence begins in the Pacific Ocean.  Up until 1993, this fence was entirely constructed of surplus military airplane landing mats […]
