Farming Practices

Tractor in sweet potato fieldThe San Joaquin Valley was a lake thousands of years ago, resulting in soil rich in the necessary essential nutrients to produce 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.
