Year-round

In the 1980s, RamonÕs family immigrated to the US to escape the political situation in his native country, El Salvador. After working a number of jobs, he met Frank Paredez, a third-generation farmer who showed him farming techniques and how to sell at farmers markets. After many years working with Frank, Ramon decided to make a go out on his own and started Rojas Family Farms. Tulare County farm advisors helped Ramon decide what crops and techniques work best for the local conditions. For soil fertility, he uses a combination of cover crops, compost, manure, natural amendments, and synthetic fertilizers. He uses a variety of methods to combat pests, with minimal use of synthetic pesticides. All fruit is picked at peak ripeness.
