Diaz FarmsFresno , CA
Antonio began farming with his brother in 1990 and then eventually coerced his wife and kids to get involved. His family continues to help on the farm and at farmers' markets. Without their help, he says he would not have been able to expand his farming business to what it is now.
His farming philosophy is to provide the best quality produce to be sold at local farmers' markets, making it available to a broad range of customers. His goal is to eventually grow vegetables and as well as to pass his farming business to his grandchildren. His favorite part of being a farmer is being able to make a difference in people's eating habits. He also loves growing apricots because of their versatility.
