Medrano's FlowersRoyal Oaks , CA
David Medrano, his wife, Rosa, and their children farm about 5 acres in Dixon, and that acreage is filled with gorgeous flowers. He began growing flowers in 2001 with just a few varieties but now grows over 60 varieties year-round.
For over 20 years they have been selling directly to farmers' market customers. The hard work is worth it, he says, and he gets the satisfaction of watching his flowers bloom while staying close to his family.
