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!

2013 Season Right Around the Corner

The on and off again changes in the weather have managed to keep the season on track.

The first crop of red and golden raspberries are ripening now.  Picked the first handful yesterday.

The blueberries and black raspberries are developing nicely.

Picked a few boysenberries and blackberries of early bearing varieties this morning.  Small but sweet and flavorful.

Ollalie and Marion blackberries, later season berries we grow, are blooming right now.

We hope to be back at the Sonoma County farmers markets in a few weeks.  Once we are in full season, we'll head back to our regular markets in San Rafael, Palo Alto and St Helena to name a few.

Stay tuned as we gear up for the season!
