Since 1929, the Giampaoli Family has farmed the rich soil of the San Joaquin Valley. What began as a modest tomato growing and packing operation under a Live Oak tree in Merced County, California is today a diversified farming operation that’s committed to excellence in all we do. Now a fourth generation family farm, Live Oak Farms grows fresh tomatoes, peppers, almonds, and a host of other crops in California’s San Joaquin Valley, Riverside and Santa Clara Counties. Farming is a demanding profession , but it remains a labor of love for the Giampaoli Family. Each family member honors the founding principles of honesty, hard work, love of family and the importance of community.
