A. Mark Lewis OrchardsStockton , CA
The farm is in its fifth generation of growing apples and cherries on 117 acres. They have the whole family working the orchards - it's a true family-run farm.
The family enjoys farming because they are their own bosses doing what they love to do. And they enjoy the interaction with customers at the farmers' markets.
They pride themselves on offering fresh from the farm fruit and look forward to farming each year. It becomes more difficult each year to farm with more variables in the mix, but they're still farming.
