Faurot Ranch

Fau­rot Ranch

Fau­rot Ranch is a small family-​owned ranch located in Wat­sonville, Cal­i­for­nia. They spe­cial­ize in baby veg­eta­bles, let­tuces, and greens and work dili­gently all year to main­tain fresh, sat­is­fy­ing prod­uct. They per­form as a fam­ily of grow­ers, pack­ers, and ship­pers to be one of the best spe­cialty pro­duce sup­pli­ers in the entire Mon­terey Bay area. Rod Fau­rot and Arturo Sanchez co-​own and man­age the farm.

The prop­erty was orig­i­nally pur­chased by Rod’s mother in 1948. The farm­ing oper­a­tions began in 1984 with Arturo and just 2 acres of rasp­ber­ries. Today, Fau­rot Ranch farms about 90 acres with over 30 vari­eties of spe­cialty veg­eta­bles. Rod and Arturo are proud that they have run a suc­cess­ful busi­ness for so many years, pro­vid­ing qual­ity prod­ucts to cus­tomers all over the world.
