San Miguel

San Miguel Produce

The Nishi­mori fam­ily came to Amer­ica to pur­sue the “Amer­i­can Dream” in 1906. They began their new life as farm work­ers fol­low­ing sea­sonal har­vests up and down the west coast. A few years later, they saved enough money to start their own farm in South­ern California.

Roy Nishi­mori estab­lished San Miguel Pro­duce in 1977 with fam­ily and friends, becom­ing the third gen­er­a­tion to con­tinue the fam­ily tra­di­tion of farm­ing. Over the years, San Miguel has become well known for grow­ing qual­ity leafy greens.

In the mid 1990’s, the com­pany cre­ated “Cut ‘N Clean Greens” prod­uct line with the goal and vision of pro­vid­ing peo­ple with an easy solu­tion for adding healthy greens to their diet more by elim­i­nat­ing the long and messy task of prepar­ing fresh greens.

Today, the “Cut ‘N Clean” prod­uct line has grown into 12 diverse and deli­cious vari­eties. As a spe­cial­ist in fresh, leafy cook­ing greens and with an eye toward the future, they look for­ward to expand­ing and inno­vat­ing excit­ing new vari­eties of nutri­tious greens for a hun­gry world.
