We have a small family farm growing a variety of fresh organic vegetables, herbs and strawberries. Our farm is located in Watsonville, California, about an hour and a half south of San Francisco. We are in the heart of strawberry production land: home of Driscoll’s berries among others. Here in Watsonville it’s cool and temperate most of the year; it never gets too hot so the strawberry and bush berry season goes for at least seven months out of the year. We are farming a total of 32 acres on 3 separate pieces in two different counties. We have 10 or so employees in the high season.
