July 8, 2019

Mission Statement

Family owned and operated for over 35 years – California Giant Berry Farms was developed by a family of passionate people who share that same passion for berries. Front planting, growing, harvesting and shipping, it takes every single person here at California Giant to get our strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries from our farms to your table.  Not only is our California Giant family dedicated to cultivating the best quality berries, but we strive to give back to our communities through charitable giving of time and money. The California Giant Foundation was formed to unify the berry grower’s philanthropic initiatives and amplify the size and scope of their giving back – we do so through countless hours and tens of thousands of dollars to 50+ worthy causes across the nation on an annual basis - such as childhood obesity and school nutrition, hunger and food insecurity, prevention and awareness, and community. What grew from a small local strawberry shipper to now an international berry company that brings smiles to homes with our fresh berries, and smiles to the ones whose lives we have touched – we are proud to be California Giant Berry Farms.
