About the Farm
After years of farming in Mexico, Chuy currently operates a 10-acre farm in Arroyo Grande. His focus is producing year-round berries, with much of his production under hoop houses to extend the season through the winter months. Recently, Chuy Berry Farm incorporated chickens on his property for egg production. This farm takes pride in sustainable growing methods. You will personally find Chuy present at the Tuesday Old Town farmers’ market in Santa Barbara almost every week.

Main Crops
Fresh strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries, Available year-round thanks to production occurring in hoop houses during the cooler months. Fresh baby summer squash is available in the spring and summer. You can occasionally score some of their farm fresh eggs, possessing vibrant dark orange yolks.
