Farm History:

My family has been farming in Valley Center for over 40 years. We've been in farmer's markets since 1992, doing Santa Monica, Wed, Sat, and Sundays and other farmer's markets in San Diego, Riverside, and Orange County as well. My brother Dan (pictured) was born into the farming business, and I (Julie) have been doing markets with my dad, John Behneman, since I was 15 years old. We love markets and farming and the satisfaction we get from growing delicious, sweet fruits and veggies to sell to our customers. They like it!
