Durst Organic Growers

Durst Organic Growers

Since the early 80’s, Jim & Deb­o­rah Durst have been grow­ing and dis­trib­ut­ing some of the best tast­ing organic pro­duce under the brand name “Hun­gry Hol­low” and “Durst Organic Grow­ers.” Durst Organic Grow­ers, Inc., strongly believes in farm­ing tech­niques that build soil fer­til­ity while bal­anc­ing wildlife and insect ecol­ogy. They do this by plant­ing cover crops, proper crop rota­tion and soil amend­ments. The farm prac­tices are based on the maxim “Feed the soil and the soil will feed the plants.”

Located in an area of Cal­i­for­nia called “Hun­gry Hol­low” at the mouth of the Capay Val­ley in Yolo County, this fourth gen­er­a­tion farm ben­e­fits from a unique micro­cli­mate and soils that allow them to grow deli­cious tast­ing aspara­gus, mel­ons, water­mel­ons, cher­ries, heir­loom toma­toes, pep­pers, and win­ter squash. All of these crops are picked in the cool morn­ing hours and packed and refrig­er­ated imme­di­ately. This allows Durst Organic Grow­ers, Inc. to bring their prod­ucts to your table in a “vine ripe” con­di­tion that pro­vides superb flavor.
