On January 16, 2019, the Central Valley Farmworker Foundation (CVFF) hosted the first annual Central Valley Pruning Competition. Dozens of farm workers made up the participants of this event, which focused on grape vine pruning. Contestants were judged on the following factors: quality, safety, speed, and knowledge of vineyards. Two employees from HMC Farms made it to the final round of competition, and our very own Jose (pictured far left) won 3rd place in the men’s division!
We are proud of Jose, as well as all of the other participants who stepped up to show off their skills in this competition. Our talented employees work very hard, and this was the perfect platform to showcase the knowledge and expertise that they possess.
