County Fair Shade Houses
Sustainable Harvests in Western Mexico
County Fair follows the sun all year long. We farm most of the year in the fertile San Joaquin Valley and then we head to Western Mexico. Our winter crops are treated with the same guidelines we use in California, maintaining sustainability practices that produce premium quality fruit.
In the winter we utilize "Shade Cloth" or Shade Houses to control the environment as much as possible, assisting in temperature retention similar to a greenhouse. We believe in sustainable farming practices and by utilizing these programs we are conserving water, eliminating unnecessary chemicals and managing the environment for our crops.
We are always exploring sustainable alternatives and environmental practices for a better tomorrow.
