Our Story Began with Corrugated Boxes
Many years ago Farmer Kenny’s dad, Ken Jr., was supplying corrugated boxes so farmers can pack their crops and ship them everywhere. He learned a lot about growing strawberries and decided he would try his hand at producing his own.
He brought Farmer Kenny in when he was just 17 years old, but the joy of entrepreneurship and growing berries would stick with him all the way through college.
And Continued in the Temecula Valley
The original farm was called Temecula Valley Strawberry Farms. This farm was located near wine country and supplied berries to our stands. Once Farmer Kenny came back from Chico State, he wanted to experiment with his new knowledge and techniques, requiring an expansion of the farm; thus the U-Pick was born.
Kenny and his dad worked hard to find the right spot for the U-Pick idea, and they settled on Rainbow for its temperate climate and distance from populated places. They wanted it to be somewhere families could escape to.
Then We Moved our Berries to Rainbow, CA
The new U-Pick farm let families and loved ones come together to share the beauty of strawberries. Farmer Kenny experimented with new growing techniques and delved into that #farmerlife. In 2012 he married Amanda, who gladly became Mrs. Farmer Kenny. With the continued support of Ken Jr. and many of our family members, Kenny’s Strawberry Farm has grown into a beautiful property.
And the Family Keeps Growing!
As the U-Pick has expanded, Farmer Kenny added two new farmers to the family. Kenny IV was born in 2014, and Henry joined us in 2018. You’ll sometimes catch the kids hanging around the farm with their dad!
But our family isn’t just blood-related. We treat everyone who visits the farm as one of our own, with kindness, respect, and joy. We love having people visit our farm to enjoy picking berries or just spending quality time. In this busy life that only gets busier, it’s important to create lasting memories with the people we love, and memories made with delicious strawberries are the sweetest.
