Dear­dorff Fam­ily Farms

Dear­dorff Fam­ily Farms pays homage to their her­itage by engag­ing in sus­tain­able farm­ing prac­tices that use fewer chem­i­cals, pro­tect the envi­ron­ment and yield health­ier, better-​tasting pro­duce for cus­tomers. Four gen­er­a­tions of farm­ing exper­tise have made them an author­ity on deliv­er­ing pro­duce to retail, food­ser­vice and whole­sale clients around the world. The farm is oper­ated by Scott Dear­dorff and Tom Dear­dorff II from Ven­tura County, California.

Known for toma­toes, cel­ery, red and green cab­bage, mixed leafy let­tuces and now organ­i­cally grown cel­ery and roma toma­toes, Dear­dorff Fam­ily Farms began grow­ing cer­ti­fied organic crops in 2005. Numer­ous envi­ron­men­tal and social com­po­nents high­light the many facets of their farm­ing oper­a­tion. Inno­va­tors in farm­ing, pack­ag­ing and cool­ing, Dear­dorff is syn­ony­mous with quality!
