B & B RanchLinden , CA
One day we're meeting with bankers and the next day we're in the field, fixing broken sprinklers. It's constantly changing and we're never quite sure what the day will bring us. However, not only are the business aspects and management of farming changing; farmers today have to be a lot more sustainable than those of fifty years ago. By farming in a sustainable manner, we're enriching our local environment and communities by attending farmers' markets.
We attend three to four markets a week and our nephews will usually come along to help out. Our hard work pays off and we can tell when people appreciate a piece of fruit that was picked at the peak of flavor, it's very rewarding. We also enjoy talking with the customers and giving them a little farming knowledge they can take with home them.
