Tomatero Farm

Earl’s Organic recently started buying from Tomatero Farm, located in Watsonville, CA, just south of Santa Cruz and 5 miles from the California coast.   Tomatero Farm has been certified organic since the beginning when Adriana and Chris, then 21 and 25 years old, started farming in 2004.  They wanted to grow produce that was affordable for everyone, especially their friends and family.

Watsonville, in the Pajaro Valley, has extremely fertile soil and a unique coastal environment with temperate conditions where it is never too hot or too cold.  The weather is perfect to grow Tomatero’s wide array of produce including tomatoes, kale, lettuce, fennel, carrots, red leaf butter lettuce, chard, leeks and strawberries.  Adriana said she “feels very lucky to be growing here”.

Adriana and Chris embrace the diversity of their organic crops and “rotate them like crazy” and let the soil rest a healthful amount of time before planting again.  “Good soil grows good vegetables”.

Strawberry season can start as early as March and can last up to December.

When Adriana is not busy farming she is also on the boards for the Monterey Farmers Market Association and the Agriculture Institute of Marin.

We are proud to offer products from this outstanding family farm.
