Hi, Welcome to my Farm!
Thanks for dropping in and checking out my farm!
Since this is my first blog post…ever… I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Jeff Yribarren and I was born and raised in Western Fresno County in California’s Central Valley. I grew up on a farm, left for four years to go to college and ended up right back where I started… on a farm. I have a wife and four kids (three in high school and one in junior high) and we live in a small community about 10 minutes west of Fresno called Kerman.
Over the past ten years I have worked to diversify the farm into four categories- tree fruit and vines, fresh organic vegetables, “truck crops”, and wine. Through this blog I will talk about each of these and try to get into detail about the experiences I have bringing each crop to harvest and some of the unique challenges each presents. Now, don’t expect it to read like a spy novel, but hopefully you will find some interesting tidbits about how your food is produced and what it goes through before it gets to you.
Oh, and you can also follow like me on Facebook at Yribarren Family Farms or twitter @jeffyribarren where I will try to keep you updated on what’s happening on the farm on a more constant basis.
Again, thanks for stopping by and I hope you will drop in from time to time to check us out!
