Driscoll's Berries

Driscoll’s Berries

Fam­ily owned and oper­ated for over 100 years, Driscoll’s is a ship­ping and mar­ket­ing busi­ness that is pas­sion­ate about grow­ing pre­mium fresh berries. Respected world­wide, Driscoll’s is one of the largest grow­ers of Cal­i­for­nia straw­ber­ries, rasp­ber­ries, blue­ber­ries, black­ber­ries and organic berries.

Joseph “Ed” Reiter and R.O. Driscoll began grow­ing the first Pajaro Val­ley Sweet Briar straw­ber­ries back in 1904! The fam­ily tra­di­tion con­tin­ues as Driscoll’s berries are grown on fam­ily farms in some of the world’s pre­miere grow­ing regions. These farm­ers share a com­mit­ment to grow­ing the world’s best berries and to pro­tect­ing their fam­ily land to hand down to future gen­er­a­tions.

Before the berries are sent to the inde­pen­dent fam­ily farms, Driscoll’s research and devel­op­ment teams use nat­ural breed­ing meth­ods to cre­ate patented vari­eties. All of their berries are sweet, juicy and nat­u­rally whole­some. Packed with antiox­i­dants, fiber and vit­a­mins, they’re a healthy treat for any time of the day. Driscoll’s food safety pro­gram ensures the whole­some­ness of the berries and the safety of their con­sumers, employ­ees, and inde­pen­dent farm­ers through­out the entire process.
