Called the Cal­i­for­nia Arti­choke & Veg­etable Grow­ers Cor­po­ra­tion until 1995, Ocean Mist Farms is head­quar­tered in Cas­tro­ville, Cal­i­for­nia — “The Arti­choke Capi­tol of the World” and home of the annual Cas­tro­ville Arti­choke Festival.

Today Ocean Mist Farms is the largest grower of fresh arti­chokes in the coun­try as well as 30 other fresh veg­eta­bles. An organic line of fresh veg­eta­bles, Ocean Mist Organic, was intro­duced in 2015.
