Church Brothers Farms is a vertically-integrated family owned and operated company that produces a full line of fresh vegetables year round with an in-house farming/harvest program and state-of-the-art processing plant, True Leaf farms. We are a grower-owned processor, farming the majority of our raw product ourselves; adhering to industry-leading food safety and quality standards. The Church family has a legacy of service and innovation, we deliver produce with passion.

Our People

At Church Brothers Farms, we believe our most valuable resource is our team of people from the field, trucks, salad processing plant to the office.  Their safety and well-being reflects on the product we produce day in and day out.

Our Family

Starting with Bruce Church, (Tom and Steve's uncle) the Church name is an institution in Salinas Valley agriculture.  As brothers, Tom and Steve have always included family in their business.  The next generation and extended family members (nephews) are working now throughout the company; however, that family environment extends to all Church Brothers Farms partners and employees.

Grower Owned

Being a grower owned fresh vegetable processor, is our differentiator. Farming has become more of a challenge due to reduced labor and land resources along with climate changes.  These changes have caused the fully integrated business model to become rare in the fresh vegetable channel.

However, Church Brothers Farms is a fully integrated agribusiness from seed to salad bowl.  The combined family farming programs of Church Brothers Farms and Rio Farms create a strong, year-round source of raw product for our True Leaf Farms processing plant.  This allows us to offer our customers a year-round product line of both value added and direct field pack commodities.

Our Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors is comprised of nine partners who have been involved from the beginning days and had the vision of what is now Church Brothers, LLC. (Not shown in photo: Robert Thurber, current trade expert/consultant on the board of directors)
