Erickson Ranch would like to take a moment to thank those that work with us. When a family owns and operates a farm it can be a challenge to say the least. There is never a dull moment once our season gets underway. There is certainly never a lack of activity whether it is ordering the seeds for planting, preparing the soil for starting the seeds in the hoop-house, watering, fertilizing and finally transplanting the young seedlings into the ground. In addition to the vegetables of course there are the fruit trees. There is the pruning, grafting, fertilizing, watering, thinning and finally the gentle harvest of the fruit at the peak of ripeness to be sold to the customer.
In addition to keeping the fruit stand stocked and open 6 days a week we will also be participating in the Benicia Farmers Market every Thursday, making deliveries to several markets outside Suisun Valley, prepare our jams at the local commercial kitchen. The pace that is set during the peak season can be enough to make our heads spin.
The reason I mention the activities and the busy schedule we keep is to let folks know that we would not be successful if it were not for those that work with Erickson Ranch. We are blessed and extremely fortunate to have a tremendous crew of employees that have been with us for many years. They are dedicated and have the same work ethic we do. They hit the ground running and don’t stop until the job is done.
I would like to introduce you to Juan and Felipa. They are our powerhouse couple. Occasionally their daughters work along- side them and we have a powerhouse family. Short order is made of any task. They are a lovely family.
Please meet Maggie. She has been part of our family for over 30 years. Maggie always has a quick smile and a welcoming attitude. She is a permanent fixture around the ranch.
Thank you, ladies and gentlemen, for helping to make our business such a success. When we open June 26th this summer we know we couldn’t have done it without you.
