Every day, the mission of our team is to cultivate a relationship between the customer and the farm. We do that through direct marketing of high-quality produce and positive farm experiences while adhering to the highest standards of ethics and integrity. We encourage our visitors to ask questions and give us their feedback.

A frequent question is ‘are we organic?’ On the farm, we practice a method of farming called sustainable agriculture. Using integrated pest management, compost, and minimal pesticides, we are committed to growing healthy and flavorful products while also using the best farming practices.

You can visit us at either of our Farm Markets, located in Somis, or our location in Moorpark, where you can purchase our field-fresh produce and say ‘hi’ to our farm animals. You may also visit us at one of the 15 Certified Farmers' Markets that we participate in throughout the week.”

The history of Underwood Family Farms is also very rich.

According to Stewards Farmland.org:

“The Underwood’s trace their farming roots in Ventura County back to 1867. Craig Underwood’s ancestors grew lima beans, walnuts, and lemons, and initiated fresh produce. A quarter of a century ago, Underwood Ranches began growing jalapenos, its principal crop today. Currently farming 3,000 acres spanning Ventura and Kern counties, it is one of the largest producers of red jalapenos in the country. Underwood Ranches is the exclusive supplier of jalapenos for Sriracha maker Huy Fong Foods Inc. and, last year, they grew 17,000 tons of jalapenos to feed the Sriracha craze. In addition to jalapenos, Underwood Ranches produces Brussels sprouts, carrots, fennel, beets, artichokes, blueberries, celeriac, turnips, tomatillos, and more. The Underwood’s also have a retail arm called Underwood Family Farms.”

If you haven’t visited Underwood Farms, consider taking a trip there this Fall season.
