We are committed to sustainable energy. As a result, we have partnered with Jacobs Farm and Soliculture to test greenhouse solar panel technology. An important step into a renewable future. Soliculture has developed panels that absorb green light and emit red light, engineered to enhance power production and plant growth. We are in the process of planting test crops and evaluating results. Most importantly, we are committed to exploring continuous innovation and farm sustainability.
About 6 months ago, I took on the position of running the Kitayama Group which includes KB Farms and Greenleaf Wholesale Florist. This has been a huge challenge for me but one I feel uniquely qualified to undertake. I am excited about the work, the people, the challenges, and the opportunities, and I feel very fortunate to be a northern California flower grower.
To celebrate International Women's Day, the staff at KB Farms spread out across Santa Cruz County and donated Gerbera Daises to women in need of a colorful boost.
