Emilio Ghiggeri planted the first sweet corn in Brentwood in the 1940s, when the area was known primarily for its production of lettuce, apricots, and melons. The farm became G&S (Ghiggeri and Stonebarger) Farms in the 1980s, when Glenn Stonebarger, who is a third-generation Brentwood farmer, married EmilioÕs daughter, Jeannie. Today, Brentwood is famous for its sweet corn production, and in particular, a variety called Brentwood Diamonds, which G&S Farms was the first to grow in the 1990s.
