Ratto Bros. farms one thousand acres of land in the San Joaquin Valley, home to some of the most fertile soil in the world. We plant the finest hybrid seeds available and take weekly soil samples, which we monitor at our in-house lab to increase quality and yield.
In addition to the use of the best commercial fertilizers and soil amendments, Ratto Bros. has developed its own composting operation. Not only does this help us better control the way we enhance soil fertility, but we believe it is a more environmentally responsible way to farm.
To minimize damage and blemishing, we handpick all our produce and pack it right there in the field. This allows us to more rapidly transport our harvest to our on-site cooling facility.
