We are excited to be CA Grown™! The "CA Grown™" campaign is a true public-private partnership. It is supported by the state and federal governments, as well as by the hundreds of growers who provide Californians with food, clothing, shelter and fiber. The campaign is also working with hundreds of stores throughout the state to promote California grown products.
Each year, as part of our community outreach, Farmers West donates bouquets to our local diner.
Hugo's mainly services the seniors of our town.
Each year, we donate free bouquets to Hugo's, who in turn give them to their breakfast crowd for Valentine's Day, Easter, Mother's Day and Father's Day.
You haven't lived until you've tried pancakes at Hugo's!
