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

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!

Berries at a Glance

This past week was full of challenges with the thunder/lightening early Monday followed by steady rain.  The good thing is the weather stayed cool for the next day and only caused a slight delay in some of the berries ripening.

This week boysenberries are coming into their short season.  Only around for a few weeks so get them now.  Make excellent pies, jams and milk shakes!

Blueberries are so sweet right now, especially the smaller variety. This variety in season for another 3 maybe 4 weeks.

Loganberries are a very unique berry in terms of flavor.  Complex with a smooth finish.  These will be in short supply as we begin to wind down the season.

Black raspberries are also at their peak.  These guys are full of antioxidants and taste good too!

We'll have a lot of different varieties of blackberries throughout summer.  This weekend we expect the Marion blackberries to begin their season.  The flavor is pretty incredible on these so don't miss out.  Make excellent pies, jams or bite size snacks!

Red, golden, orange and purple raspberries are limited as we wait for the next crop to take off.  Don't miss our on their unique flavors when you see them at a market.

If you really want a particular berry, call a couple of days before the market and we'll try our best to set them aside for you.  Or if you want to pick up at the farm,  let us know and we'll set up an appointment.

Have a berry good week!
