Western Growers is debuting a documentary short video online for Thanksgiving that demonstrates the care California farmers put into growing the food that will be consumed this holiday season. Farmers care deeply about consumers, their families, workers, and the land.
“Real farmers care about you, the consumer — your health, your safety, the quality and flavor of your fresh produce,” Mark Mason of Huntington Farms said in the video. “Because we feed our families the same fruits and vegetables we feed yours.”
In addition to Mason, the video features Colby Pereira, Braga Fresh Family Farms; Martin Jefferson, Duda Farm Fresh Foods; and Jynel Gularte, Rincon Farms.
“Real farmers care. Real farmers care about their workers. Some of them have been with us for decades. Many are like family, because without them, our farms do not exist,” Jefferson said.
