We are excited to open the farm and show you around. We would love to show you what we have been up to over the last couple years. Our passion for growing the finest flowers and greens in the most conscientious way continues to drive us. With a rich history and over 35 years of growing the flowers you love, our goal is to always do better and to constantly evolve by carefully monitoring every part of the growing, harvesting & warehouse process. We strive to give back to the land that has given so much to us by creating a self-sustaining farm which uses reclaimed water, solar power (from our 5 acres of solar panels), and by using our very own compost created on the farm to keep our soil healthy and productive. We continue our high standards in our warehouse which includes Quality Control, Product Rotation (FiFo), and Cold Chain Management.

We are a member of Certified American Grown, Society of American Florist & Cal Flowers that help promote the importance of our flower farm here in California.
