Your Happiness

Moderation. Small helpings. Sample a little bit of everything. These are the secrets of happiness and good health.

Julia Child

Health, nutrition, and diet are very important, but so is fun and flavor.

As farmers, we have two main goals. One is to nourish you with safe and healthy produce. The other is to wow you with flavor.

Your happiness is important to us. Eating produce can be wickedly pleasurable. Preparing produce dishes can be fun.

Here are some thoughts and suggestions:

  • a
    A team member visits with a nurse at one of our medical facilities.
  • a
    A company doctor checks on a young patient.
  • a
    We encourage families in our company provided housing.
  • a
    Taking pride in the summer harvest on the cool California coast.
  • a
    A view inside one of our pre-school class rooms.
  • a
    Sorting tomatoes takes a gentle touch and a keen eye.
  • a
    Packing it right the first time requires skill and experience.
  • a
    Harvesting vine ripened tomatoes.
  • a
    Enjoying a book in one of our day care facilities.
  • a
    Future scientist works on renewable energy wind mill.
  • a
    The beauty of summer berries.
  • a
    Team member housing, made out of straw bales.
  • a
    A happy team is a productive team.

Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie.

Once in a while, reward yourself. You deserve it! Put extra whipped cream on those berries. Dip that ripe, succulent strawberry in chocolate. Put a scoop of ice cream on that sliced tomato (just kidding, but you get the idea).

Food is our common ground, a universal experience.

James Beard

It’s fun and exciting to experience new foods from different cultures. There is a foodie trend centered around "small plates.” This is not a new phenomenon. The Spanish have their tapas. The Chinese have their dim sum. And in the Arab quarter in Jerusalem you can eat like a sheik on many small plate delicacies. We can learn from these cultures. Eat less, but eat better.

Put down the catsup bottle and try some fresh salsa. Experience a chopped tomato-cucumber salad which is common to much of the Mediterranean and Arab world. Stir fry some veggies Asian style. You won't believe what you’ve been missing. Bon appetite!

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.

J.R.R. Tolkien

When you have the time, preparing food for one's family and friends can be a rich and rewarding experience. When you involve others, it can be fun and entertaining. At your next gathering, try involving your guests, share new recipes and techniques, and have a ball!

I love to cook comfort food. I'll make fish and vegetables or meat and vegetables and potatoes or rice. The ritual of it is fun for me, and the creativity of it.

Reese Witherspoon

Food can be a great way to bring back fond memories. It can help us find comfort when we need it most. Make that salad your grandmother used to make. Carry forward your mother’s favorite recipe. Continue the tradition!
