Del Mar Farms was founded in 1983 by owners Jon Maring and Lee Del Don. Both owners were in their early twenties when purchasing their first plot of land in the Westley area. They first started growing bell peppers from 1983 to 1996. Today Del Mar Farms has shown tremendous growth over the past 25 years. Jon and Lee now farm various crops ranging from apricots to zucchini. They have vertically integrated their business from farming, packing, to marketing.
Persuing sustainable agricultural practices, Del Mar Farms has recently installed a solar photovoltaic system (solar energy) in its Patterson Facility.
They believe in giving their customers the highest quality produce year in and year out. Del Mar Farms handles almonds, apricots, cantaloupes, honeydews, and Roma tomatoes, but they are well diversified growers of over 20 other differenct commodities for fresh and processed packaging.
Del Mar Farms has receintly launched their own Del Mar branded cantaloupes and honeydews.
