About

Nacho Sanchez graduated from Fresno State with a B.S. in agriculture. In 1989, he bought a six-acre orchard with his wife, Casamira, which they farmed in their spare time. By 1993, Nacho had acquired over 150 acres and was farming full time. Nacho and Casamira feel good knowing that workers can pick fruit and customers can enjoy it without worrying about pesticide residues. Any fruit the Sanchezes don’t sell is incorporated back into their soil.

Certification

Quality Assurance International (QAI) since June 1999

Fun Fact

In 1991, Nacho and Casamira’s twin girls were born, inspiring the name Twin Girls Farm. Nacho has named some of his peach varieties after their third daughter, Savannah.
