Fruitilicious Farm/Tierra Madre

Esta página aún no está disponible en Español.

Fruitilicious Farm is a partnership of Zea Sonnabend and Terence Welch, both with many years of experience with organic fruit farming and related organic agriculture. We farm two parcels of land in Watsonville/Corralitos, totalling 16 acres. One orchard is mature apple trees on standard rootstocks and the other is young diverse fruit trees and bushes that are 1 to 3 years old.
We produce the best quality fruit we can with cover crops, compost, and meticulous attention to detail. We have managed the orchard towards producing fresh pack apples for both wholesale and direct outlets, with culls going to companies that make organic juice and hard cider. Our wholesale fruit can be found under the Viva Tierra label.
We have more than 70 varieties of apples, including heirlooms unique to California, antique varieties from Europe, and cider varieties, as well as newer disease resistant cultivars. We also have figs (5 + varieties), pears (4 varieties), quince (4 varieties), citrus (about 80 trees of a wide number of common and rare varieties), peaches (6 varieties), and avocadoes (12 varieties). For bush fruits we have blue and pink blueberries now, with sea berries, honey berries, pineapple guava, and others in the future.
Both Zea and Terence are career-long organic farming specialists and grow fruit with the utmost in care and attention. We hope to bring you the most nutrient-dense delicious fruit possible.
