Farm Size: 40 acres
Over the years, Bautista Ranch has found their niche growing specialty products including heirloom tomatoes and peppers. We also grow a rainbow of colorful squash, melons, beans, and specialty ethnic vegetables. Hand harvesting (even walnuts) produces the best possible fruits and vegetables. Our afternoon markets benefit from same day harvest.
It is important for us to practice sustainable farming not only as a farming method, but as a way of life. Using a combination of techniques such as cover crops, biological control, and mechanical and hand labor, we have improved the overall health of the land as well as bringing the best possible fruits and vegetables to market. Being a good steward to the land is a long term relationship and we also pride ourselves in the long relationship that we have with their customers.
At the core of our farming lies our commitment to producing the best produce we can, at a reasonable price for our customers; this has allowed us to proudly serve at the farmers’ markets for over twenty-four years.
