Borba Family FarmsAromas , CA
Borba Farms is family-owned and operated out of Aromas. The Borbas have been farming for four generations, beginning with apricot orchards back in the late 1800s. Ron's parents, George and Sadie Borba grew and dried Blenheim apricots on the same land farmed today. Ron started expanding with bush berries, apples, and squash.
After beginning to attend farmers' markets in 1993, he slowly began experimenting with specialty produce and varieties. Ron, his wife Cindy, and their four kids specialize in growing a wide variety of certified organic produce year-round on their acreage in both Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties. Belonging to a number of farmers' market associations, you can find their produce stands at Bay Area locations at scheduled markets.
