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 #5


This week has been rather overcast and cold at the farm. Blackberries are slow to ripen but this may help the raspberries come in sooner.

Blueberries - ~1-2 weeks to go in the season

Blackberries - Triple Crown in season now. Beautiful berries! Chester variety is starting to ripen too. Marion Blackberries - had a few yesterday in Palo Alto. Cherokee - second harvest is light so we'll have limited quantities at the markets next week.

Red Raspberries - Just starting to come back into season. We have a few red raspberries so stop by the farmers markets early if you're interested in these.

Golden and Orange raspberries - give these a few more weeks.

Farm stand open today between 11-3pm. We have a new batch of blueberry ice cream for you to enjoy.
