The Teresi and Rasmussen families have a long history of farming in the Santa Clara valley, mostly growing prunes, apricots and cherries. Phil Teresi and Grace Rasmussen first met at Farm Bureau events for local young farmers and ranchers. They reconnected 10 years later after each had been involved with a handful of other farming and food related ventures. For the past 20 years they have been farming 12 acres in San Benito County. They are most proud of their dry farmed tomatoes and fruit, saving water and producing flavor-packed organic produce.
