What We Do

We grow stories. On the Masumoto Family Farm we cultivate Certified Organic peaches, nectarines, and grapes (for raisins).  We do our best to sustainably farm our 80 acres south of Fresno and share our harvests through food, writing, and art. We love what we do.

We are certified by California Certified Organic Farms. Read more about how we define our work.

Who We Are

The first acres of the Masumoto Family Farm were purchased in 1948 by Takashi “Joe” Masumoto. With family labor and a stubborn resilience, the Masumotos enriched the soil and planted roots. The farm is now 80 acres of Certified Organic land, producing peaches, nectarines, and grapes for raisins each year. Read more about who we are . . .
