The History of HMC Farms

Five generations of McClartys have farmed the land they own today in California’s Central Valley. Family after family handed down farms, tricks of the trade, and a passion for what they produced. The history of what made farming what it is today affects everything that HMC is right now. Without the people who kept their dream and our dream alive, we wouldn’t be doing what we love today.
