History & Heritage

The Vann family began farming operations in Colusa County in the early 1900’s. From humble beginnings, the operation has grown to over 17,000 acres under production currently. Our significant captive tonnage garners excellent product custodianship from field to shipment, wherein we place controls over most processes in the supply chain. Through our business model we optimize traceability from finished pack lot to field of origin.

Our growth and success has been bolstered immeasurably by to our dedicated employees. Our valued employees stay with us for a considerable length of time (average tenure of a VFO farm employee is 15+ years), which ensures each individual is able to accumulate a vast knowledge base. We’re incredibly thankful for the amazing team we’ve built over the years, and we’re proud to work alongside them each day, moving the needle forward and setting the bar of excellence in our industry.
