Esparto, California

Certified Since: 1988

Jim Durst PhotoJim and Deborah Durst have been growing organic produce since the early 80’s. Their “Hungry Hollow” and “Durst Organic Growers” brands represent some of the best tasting organic produce.

Jim and Deborah strongly believe in farming techniques that build soil fertility while balancing wildlife and insect ecology. The farm practices are based on the maxim “Feed the soil and the soil will feed the plants.”

Their fourth-generation farm is located in an area of California called Hungry Hollow at the mouth of the Capay Valley in Yolo County.  The unique micro climate and soils provide the perfect environment for growing the most delicious tasting asparagus, melons and tomatoes. Enjoy!
