We always strive to Bee Better.
Bees play a vital role in pollinating manyfoods that we depend on, including berries. Our commitment to keeping pollinator habitats safe, while encouraging healthy pollinator populations led us to become Bee Better Certified. This certification means that at least 5% of our land is dedicated to promoting pollinator habits. By choosing California Giant berries, you can be confident that your purchasing decision is benefiting pollinators and grower partners, like ours, that protect them.
We grow in sustainable ways.
We strive to protect the land on which we grow berries so that we can continue to have viable farms for generations to come. Our berries are grown using sustainable farming practices, which include building and maintaining healthy soil, water management, minimizing pollution, and promoting biodiversity.
