John­ston Farms is a fourth gen­er­a­tion fam­ily farm, founded shortly after World War II by John C. John­ston when he moved his fam­ily from Ore­gon to Bak­ers­field to grow pota­toes in the Edi­son area of Kern County, California.

In 1963, he added Cit­rus fruits to the farm, start­ing with Navel oranges and then Sat­suma Man­darins in the 1970’s. Red Grape­fruit were added in the 1980’s.
