About

Steven’s family has strong ties to the land in California’s Central Valley. His grandfather started a 20-acre vineyard in the 1920s, and his father purchased most of the current acreage of Kashiwase Farms in 1948. After studying pomology and entomology at UC Davis, Steven began farming in the 1970s and converted to organic in the 1990s.

Steven and Lisa strive to maintain the farm, both ecologically and financially, for the next generation. Marketing directly to consumers at farmers markets and planting a diversity of crops are both important to sustaining the operation.

Certification

California Certified Organic Farmer since 1997

Fun Fact

The 20 acres that Steven’s grandfather (a Japanese immigrant) first farmed in the 1920s are still part of Kashiwase Farms.
