You Say Tomato...

The Parsons family grows grapes and tomatoes in Fulton, Calif., a farm they established in 1994. Today, Kelley and Tom Parsons at Parsons Homegrown grow some of the finest tomatoes in California, by using a greenhouse the couple purchased from Agra Tech, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of greenhouses designed for vegetable growing and all other types of greenhouse farming. The switch to an Agra Tech greenhouse has helped Parsons to produce amazing tomatoes time after time.

Currently Parsons Homegrown grows three varieties of tomatoes–Favorita, a cherry tomato; Geronimo, a red beefsteak, and Yellow Boy, a yellow beefsteak. They can be found at Shelton’s Market and Big John’s Market in Healdsburg, Molsberry’s Market in Santa Rosa, Speers Market in Forestville and all three Oliver’s Markets. John Ash & Co. and Rosso Pizzeria and the Duck Club in Bodega Bay also buy Parsons tomatoes. You can always find Kelley Parsons at her stall at the Santa Rosa Original Certified Farmers Market.

Kelley will tell us about the genesis of this thriving farm which started randomly and unexpectedly in the early 1990s. Her passion and knowledge of all things tomatoes will be evident to all of us!
