A letter from our family to you

The tradition of family farming has been a part of our story since 1887. HMC Farms is much more than a business to us, it’s a way of life. We have spent generations adapting our growing and handling practices to reliably provide the simple pleasure of great tasting fruit. Our actions are measured in ways that ensure we protect the environment for future generations and the community in which we live and farm.

 

The core of HMC Farms is an extended family of agricultural and marketing experts… people who have grown up in the produce business, and those who have invested careers in learning everything there is to know about growing and delivering a better piece of fruit for people to enjoy. Our management team, growing team, and marketing team work closely together with a single purpose: to reliably provide the best tasting tree fruit and grapes with consistent flavor every time.

100 years after the first ranch was purchased, HMC Farms was created as a company founded on great tasting fruit.

We began planting trees in our new high density system, revolutionizing the way we grow tree fruit.

Our family still fully owns and operates HMC Farms. We are experimenting with technology that previous generations never would have imagined possible in order to ensure the longevity of our family business.

Rooted in our community

AND DOING WHAT TASTES RIGHT™

When we say that we are deeply rooted in our community, we mean it. We work, live, shop, and volunteer all in the same community. Peach trees and grapevines line the driveway to our office, and the soil we farm is also where we’ve raised generations of our family. This has cultivated a desire for us to give back to the land, our community, and the people who support HMC Farms.
