The Petersons.

Carrying on the 100-year tradition, growing delicious stone fruit is natural to the Petersons. The family farm is located in the heart of the central valley, in a small Swedish town called Kingsburg. Vern grew up working alongside his father in the orchards. Through that season, he learned life-long lessons, working hard and learning from his mistakes. The love of life and a love for people was instilled in Vern by his father—an enduring trait he still reflects to this day. Catch the glimmer in his eye and the wide smile across his face. Now Vern, along with his son Erik, farm a variety of organic tree fruits including peaches, plums, and nectarines. A family tradition passed on to the next generation.  Beyond the work, the Petersons care for their people. Genuine and whole—in all they do. Vern and his family work hard, using organics to enrich the world around them, both in their fruit and through the people.

Healthy Soil.

The Petersons farm below the soil to support maximum biodiversity and levels of organic matter. Healthy soil is the foundation of Regenerative Organic farming techniques. This includes promoting an environment where microorganisms can thrive, further enriching the soil on which Peterson trees stand. 

The family also raises organic chickens, using their waste for fertilizer on the farm. A symbiotic relationship that naturally boosts farming operations.
