Baloian Farms Partners With Kono Farms For Fall Peppers

Baloian Farms is pleased to announce a new growing partnership with long time Coachella Valley pepper grower Emerson Kono of Kono Farms. Kono Farms has been a top quality green and red pepper producer in the Coachella Valley for over 60 years. This new partnership is for the fall pepper crop currently in production and will be in addition to the existing growing, sales and marketing relationship Baloian Farms has with Coachella grower Belk Farms. The Kono family’s tradition of excellence and commitment to quality is well known in the industry and Baloian Farms is very excited to be associated with a top grower like Emerson Kono.

The addition of Kono Farms pepper production to the existing Baloian/Belk production in the Coachella Valley, will provide customers with an increased volume of Bell Peppers with the same quality, consistency and reliability that vegetable buyers have come to rely on from Baloian Farms. Tim Baloian said, “I’m very proud to welcome Emerson to our family of growers, and we look forward to cultivating a lasting relationship in the coming years while providing healthy, nutritious food for customers and their families.”


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.
