The Peach Jamboree


Lifemates Danny Lazzarini and Andrew Seidman, with help from 2 or more seasonal employees.


27 acres located in Oroville, about 149 miles from the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market

Farm History

Danny and Andrew purchased Woodleaf Farm (now called The Peach Jamboree) from the original founder, Carl Rosato, who retired in 2015. The farm succession went well thanks to the collaboration and the cooperation between Carl and Helen, and the new farmers who are committed to carrying on the legacy of the farm’s high-quality fruit and vegetables. In the second season of Danny and Andrew’s ownership, the 2017 summer wildfires damaged much of their farm, including their home and many of the farm buildings. Danny and Andrew are now facing the long road to recovery post fire. Thankfully much of the orchard was spared and the farm continues to grow yellow and white peaches, nectarines, Warren pears, figs, plums, pluots, and specialty vegetables. With the encouragement and support of family, friends, and the farmers market community, the couple is in the process of rebuilding and hopes to make the farm be better than ever.

The farm’s clay loam is supplemented with 2-4 tons of green waste compost per acre per year. 

Water Use

Gravity flow irrigation is fed by local Lake Wyandotte, filled by mountain rainfall runoff.  Micro sprinklers keep the permanent living mulch healthy and which is key to biologically active soil and the overall ecosystem of the farm.

Weed Control & Pest Management

Carefully timed mowing of the orchard’s ground cover helps keeps beneficial insect populations alive and thriving. The clover and grasses are allowed to flower and seed in the orchard until harvest.  This provides food and habitat for predators and parasites thus providing biological control of pests.  Working farm cats help with rodent control in the orchard.

Fun Fact

Danny and Andrew periodically host farm campouts throughout the season, which are followed by awesome peach themed brunches in the orchard.
