Founded in 1974, our vineyards are located in the Southern San Joaquin Valley. We proudly own and operate two state of the art distribution facilities in Bakersfield, California which is where our sales office is located. Our administrative offices are located in Los Angeles, CA.
As the industry evolved over the last 50 years so did Grapeman Farms. Based on the needs of our customers we have developed into a year-round supplier of the finest table grapes grown throughout the Americas. We have sales offices in Philadelphia, PA – Nogales, AZ and Bakersfield, CA to be near the fruit and provide the very best hands-on service to our customers. We have formed a network of partnership growers which enable us to ship fresh table grapes throughout the entire year.

No matter the season Grapeman Farms delivers quality grapes
The cold storage building consists of 124,970 square feet that includes 118,786 square feet of refrigerated area. We do our precooling, packaging, and longer-term storage at this location. The facility was originally constructed in 2000 with an addition in 2007.
The cold storage can currently hold about 600,000 boxes when full. The cold storage is a good example of a modern facility that is efficient to operate it was purposely designed to allow for minimum movement of product from the time our grapes are received to the time they are put onto delivery trucks.
We are parents as well as farmers. The foundation of our food safety philosophy is to grow, pack and ship table grapes that we feel comfortable feeding to our own children. We diligently evaluate all phases of production and distribution to ensure that all measures have been taken to eliminate the risk of foodbourne illness originating from any and all stages of production and distribution.
Every single box that is grown and sold by Grapeman Farms has qualified with a food safety program and traceability audited by third party companies.
Grapeman Farm is committed to responsible and sustainable agricultural practices. It is of paramount importance that we are stewards of our land, natural resources, our human resources and the local communities in which we operate. This concept touches all aspects of our farming operations by choosing recyclable packing materials, reducing consumption of electricity and implementing alternative farming practices which enables reduced use of agrichemicals.
