FARMS Leadership – Central Valley – January 26, 2021
Location of Field Day:
Peterson Farms, Kingsberg, CA
In January the FARMS Leadership students really got to understand what it means to have a “family farm” with a tour at Peterson Farms in Kingsberg, CA. Students were able to see that the family at Peterson Farms extends beyond the bloodlines of the Peterson’s and includes all employees as well. Employee interviews clearly showed that they feel valued and loved at Peterson Farms. In addition to hearing about how the operation runs, students learned about peach harvest and packing. Although Peterson Farms grows and packs all varieties of fruits this day was about the peach and as Mr. Peterson says, “We grow dessert!” If you haven’t already go check out “Beyond the Harvest” youtube videos and see the whole story of the Peterson Family Farm.
