DePalma Farms

DePalma Farms rep­re­sents three gen­er­a­tions of farm­ing in North­ern Cal­i­for­nia, since 1951. Pat DePalma and his par­ents emi­grated to the United States from Bitritto-​Bart, Italy in 1947.

In search of the most fer­tile soil, the DePalma fam­ily moved to the fer­tile San Joaquin Val­ley in Cal­i­for­nia. They pur­chased 23 acres in Escalon to grow peaches and grapes there.

Today, the DePalma fam­ily farms land from Modesto to Lodi and dis­trib­utes its fine pro­duce through­out the United States and Canada. In addi­tion to peaches and wine and table grapes, they also farm cher­ries, olives, nec­tarines, corn, almonds, wal­nuts, pis­ta­chios and persimmons.

They can be found at var­i­ous Farmer’s Mar­kets in North­ern Cal­i­for­nia sell­ing their farm to table fresh products.
