Mission

We are dedicated to growing the most flavorful berries, picking them at their peak and offering them fresh directly to our customers.

WE ARE NOT A U-PICK

History

My photo
Our family started the farm back in 1986 after purchasing part of the oldest blueberry farm in California - Green Valley which planted the first blueberries in California in 1940. We started with blueberries and over the years expanded to include other berries. For 30 years, we've been dedicated to growing flavorful berries everyone can enjoy. Sabina and Tarcicio Vigil, mom and dad, put all their efforts into making the farm the best berry farm in the North Bay. We believe in clean agricultural practices and became a California Certified Organic Farmer early on. We also sell conventionally grown berries. Each family member is active in contributing to our success - from deciding which berries to plant to selling directly to our customers at local farmers markets in Northern California. It's truly a family owned and run farm!

The bees and black raspberries - a perfect partnership



The bees are hard at work pollinating the black raspberries. Black raspberries have more antioxidants than blueberries! They are great to eat fresh or in jams. Or if you're feeling super adventurous you can make a black raspberry sorbet. We have been growing black raspberries for about 10 years and we expect them to be in season mid to late June.

  1. I'm so happy I found this blog. My boyfriend and I visited your farm last week when we were touring Northern California. I have to say you have the best berries ever! I wish you shipped overnight to Ohio!! We will definitely be back next time we are in California. -A.S.
