Consolidation. Everywhere.

Have you noticed the trend of large companies buying up small and mid-sized farms in the valley and elsewhere? Aging growers are cashing in for a steady paycheck and retirement plans. Development pressure is also at play. What does this mean for the future of organic stone fruit and other specialty crops? How will today’s trends affect future generations? Hear different perspectives from two growers who’ve been at it a long time and have seen it all.
