Who knew that some of the most delicious strawberries in the world are grown on a tiny little farm in the little town of Turlock, California?
Nearly 30 years ago, Bee Yang’s father immigrated from Laos, Vietnam to pursue his dream of owning his own business and sending his five kids to college. And that’s exactly what he did after becoming a strawberry farmer in the Central Valley. Now the only strawberry grower in Turlock, Bee has recently taken over the family business after his parents recent retirement, including running their little roadside stand during the summer.
A few highlights captured from our visit with Bee:
Bee and his wife, Dua, are happy to sell their strawberries directly to customers alongside their small field. Bee says he loves to hear directly from local strawberry lovers about how the berries taste.
