A Passion for Farming and The Earth

I have always had a passion for farming! I’ve harvested cotton, cut sugarcane, planted tomatoes and now, I’m a flower farmer (with a small vegetable garden and some fruit trees in between), and I absolutely love it!

As a flower farmer, I have come to realize how important it is to take good care of my land by preventing erosion and mulching to enrich and protect the soil from dehydration or loss of water. Water is precious here in S. California, without it there would be no locally grown flowers to enjoy, and that is why I use a drip system to irrigate my plants. This type of system conserves water by dripping just enough water around each plant to feed only its roots.

In addition, Resendiz Brothers has become Veriflora certified; and I am always looking for new and creative ways to conserve and protect my land and the environment, so my family can keep growing high quality flowers and foliage for years to come!
