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!

Berry Update #2

Organic blueberries are at the peak of the season this week. This is a great week to buy if you are going to freeze or make jams.

Ollalie blackberries - with the heat this weekend the last of the crop picked up great flavor. Last full week with any real quantities at the farmers markets.

Marion blackberries - we had a few this weekend at the farmers markets. This coming week we'll have them again at the markets. Super sweet and juicy!

Cheyenne blackberries - we've had them for a few weeks and the flavor on these berries is excellent. About a week left in the season

Black raspberries - these berries have been excellent this season. Last full week for these too. We only get one crop a year (not like the red raspberries where we get a spring and fall crop) so don't miss out.

Boysenberries - like the Ollalie's picked up great flavor over the weekend. These are my personal favorite. Get them while they're in season - ~1 full week.

  1. When will you be at the Walnut Creek farmer's market? Looked for you guys yesterday but didn't see you. You guys have the best blueberries so I hope you are still coming to WC!
