Before the 1930’s the Huron region was a desert. Water from the Sierra Nevada Mountains in northern California was brought through the Central Valley to the Huron region through an irrigation system that created an economic boom. In 2006 California’s agricultural output was worth more than any other state thanks in part to this engineering marvel. Today Huron is known mostly for producing lettuce, onions, and tomatoes.
We began growing and harvesting in Huron because of its ideal spring and fall weather, providing us with an additional plentiful supply of lettuces in the spring and once again in the fall, as we transition between our main growing seasons in Salinas Valley and Yuma.
