  • 90 Miles North of Los Angeles


Our packing and shipping operation at Country Sweet Produce is close to major highways in all directions and just 90 miles from Los Angeles, the center of agricultural distribution for the nation. We spend as much effort cultivating and maintaining relation- ships with our customers in Southern California as we do cultivating our crops and maintaining our land.

We strive to cultivate our crops and maintain our land in the Bako region so that we can provide the best tasting produce for your family.


The San Joaquin Valley was a lake thousands of years ago, resulting in soil rich in essential nutrients for producing the sweetest produce in the nation. The region’s hot, arid climate and consistent temperature enables the growth of crops all year round.

We learned long ago that if you take good care of the soil, it will give back. Valpredo Farms maintains the vitality of the soil through scrupulous evaluation, testing and good farming practices. Over the three generations of farming, we have perfected a cultivation schedule that reinvigorates our land with necessary nutrients through crop rotation and deep tilling down to the aquifer.
