Jeff Boldt Farms

Jeff Boldt and his fam­ily proudly grow Sum­meripe peaches, plums and nec­tarines. He and his fam­ily are one of a spe­cial group of grow­ers for Moun­tain View Fruit Sales and the Sum­mer­ripe fruit pro­gram.

Jeff’s story of farm­ing actu­ally starts over 100 years ago. In 1907, Jeff’s fam­ily started farm­ing the same ground they farm today. Jeff’s wife, Brenda, grew up on the land her fam­ily pur­chased in the early 1900’s. They started with about 25 acres of tree fruit, today they farm over 250 acres of peaches, plums and nec­tarines. Jeff appre­ci­ates farm­ing because it’s a lifestyle and pro­fes­sion he can do along­side his fam­ily. He also enjoyed the fact, he could attend his daugh­ters sport­ing events, and could be there while they grew up.

Jeff loves walk­ing his fields dur­ing bloom, and loves the smell of fruit dur­ing har­vest. His favorite fruit is nec­tarines, and his favorite vari­eties are Honey Blaze and Spring Bright. He hopes that you can see, feel, and taste the pas­sion he and his fam­ily put into their farm­ing. They have spent many years per­fect­ing what they do today. That cul­mi­nates in Cal­i­for­nia grown, Sum­meripe fresh stone fruit.
