Rodney Kawano Farms has developed a reputation for quality, high-value crops in Southern California specifically in San Diego County. We are a family owned and operated farm specializing in superior flavor and freshness!
We thank you for buying local and supporting our local farm. The simple concept of buying food produced, grown, or raised as close to your home as possible yields many benefits. Here are just a few examples of the why shopping from our local farm is beneficial to you and your community.
* Local Produce is Fresher ~ Our produce is picked at the height of ripeness and typically picked within the past day or two. We can offer produce varieties grown for taste and freshness rather than for shipping and long shelf life.
* Local Food Supports Local Farmers ~ Our family farm is part of the American tradition of self-sufficiency and serve as the basis of local communities. With each local food purchase more of your money spent on food goes directly to us, the farmer. Local farmers spend their money with local merchants and the money stays in your community.
* Buying Local Protects the Environment ~ When you buy food locally you reduce energy consumption. Local food doesn’t have to travel far. Food, on average, travels 1500-2500 miles from farm to table. Buying local helps to lower energy consumption by reducing transportation and storage, both of which are very energy-intensive and pollute our air and water.
* Buying Local Preserves Diversity ~ Shopping from certified farmers at Farmers’ Markets are instrumental in preserving the diversity of California agriculture by providing marketing outlets for the small acreage growers of heirloom, culinary, ethnic, and specialty crops not widely grown on a large scale or found at traditional food sources.
