Baloian Farms Begins Harvest For Their Winter Leaf Program

This week Baloian Farms will be celebrating their 40th leaf and wet veg season in Fresno, California. Tim Baloian said, “The conditions in Fresno this time of year are optimal for growing premium quality leaf and wet veg crops. Over the years, we have built a reputation for servicing the industry by providing a reliable leaf crop during the transitional period between the end of the Salinas season and the beginning of Yuma.” In early December, Baloian Farms will transition to Coachella, which will carry their winter leaf program through March. Tim Baloian explained, “By strategically scheduling the start of our leaf program and the transition to Coachella, we are able to fulfill our customers’ needs for premium quality wet veg during the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s holidays.” Baloian Farms offerings include romaine, romaine hearts, green leaf, red leaf, butter lettuce, spinach, celery, cauliflower, napa cabbage, bok choy and daikon.

In addition to their winter leaf program, Baloian Farms will simultaneously continue with their year round offerings of green and red bell peppers, eggplant, sweet mini peppers, and squash in Coachella and Nogales through spring 2017, which will mark their 100th anniversary.

Baloian Farms is a fourth generation, vertically integrated family farm, with year round operations specializing in peppers and mixed vegetables grown in California and Mexico. Baloian Farms has a company philosophy that includes pampering the product and respecting the customer.
