Family Owned Farming Business:
Joseph Perry, owner of J.E. Perry Farms has been farming since he was 13. The Perry and Mello Families immigrated to the United States in the early 1900’s and settled in North Fremont on Beard Road. The road was laced with small farms with cherry, walnut and apricot orchards as well as vegetables.
Joe met his wife Pat while in high school and married her in 1952. She ran the other half of the farming operation and was doing the accounting plus raising their four kids. Pat has been an important part of the family business and is now retired.
The Perry Family continues to carry forth the principles of organic farming making them excellent stewards of the land.
