Hamlow FarmsCeres , CA
Since 1960, they have been providing quality stone fruit, citrus, and nuts to about 60 farmers' markets from their 3rd generation, family-run farm. Early on, they started by drying peaches and as the farm grew, they diversified to other stone fruit and nuts.
They offer many different varieties of peaches, nectarines, cherries, plums, and several varieties of citrus. Walnut and almonds are grown as well. Watching trees grow and tending to their needs is one of the joys of farming. They say that providing freshly picked fruit to customers at farmers' market and talking with them about their products is enjoyable as well.
The next generation is already working on the ranch and tending to the trees. They also enjoy helping out at the many farmers' markets each week.
