Berry Berry Good!
Located in Nipomo, California, this family farm started its business 10 years ago. Since the area has the perfect weather for berries, that is what they grow for our market and other markets in Southern California.
Their farm of 12 acres produces 3 varieties of blackberries, 2 of raspberries and 6 of strawberries. The fruit is grown in greenhouses during the colder seasons of the year and some in tunnels during other times of the year. This practice protects the berries from cold weather and wind. The farm uses only natural fertilizers and no pesticides or chemical sprays. Berries are picked and brought directly to market, never stored in cold storage.
The work is hard, especially the drive to Wrightwood, which takes almost 5 hours.
Many thanks to Zenaida Quintero and Leon Sotelo the husband and wife team who bring us our delicious and healthy berries every week – come rain, snow or sunshine.
