CASTROVILLE, Calif. – Ocean Mist Farms, leading grower of fresh artichokes, is proud to announce a significant increase in organic vegetable acreage to meet growing shopper demand while remaining committed to the company’s long-standing sustainable farming practices. Born out of the same quality growing principles that date back to 1924, the Ocean Mist Organic® brand has seen large-scale growth since its inception in 2015.
The fourth generation family owned and operated organization started farming organic artichokes in 2000 and now provides 16 additional vegetables sold under the Ocean Mist Organic label. To guarantee continuous production of high-quality products, the Ocean Mist R&D department is steadfast in conducting comprehensive and on-going seed research that aligns with organic production parameters.
