G.L Alfieri Farms is located on 150 acres in Escalon and Ripon, about 90 miles south of the San Francisco Bay area. Gary Alfieri’s grandfather Gasper began farming the land in 1926, growing alfalfa hay using horse-drawn plows. He planted an almond orchard soon after. Gary’s father Joseph Alfieri began working on the farm when he returned from serving in the army during WWII, and Gary, along with his brothers and sister, grew up farming alongside their father. Now, Gary has been running the farm for over 24 years and offers a huge variety of delicious fruit and nut confections, stone fruit, apples, and grapes. He is an active foster parent and has adopted four children who he raised on the farm.
