Owner Greg Beccio has been growing organically for over 20 years in the central coast region of northern California. They personally deliver produce to farmers' markets, local restaurants and grocery locations throughout the greater bay area, always in the peak of its freshness. Some of their signature crops includes pre-washed baby mixed salad greens with edible flowers, tender leafy greens, juicy specialty melons, flavorful heirloom and dry-farmed tomatoes as well as potatoes, sweet potatoes, specialty peppers and many unique varieties of summer squash and bunched herbs. The achievements and prolonged existence of the farm are directly due to the dedication and enthusiasm of the Happy Boy employees, some of whom have been with the farm since its beginnings, well over a decade ago.
