The California Cut Flower Commission represents a unified effort by farmers to enhance the performance of the California cut flower and foliage industry.

Since joining Kitayama Brothers in 2016, Farai has truly embodied the mission of the CCFC in his work streamlining and modernizing KB Farms. Farai continues to study the markets for individual varieties, ensuring that KB Farms is able to fill gaps in the market helping customers get the right flowers at the right times.

In addition to keeping KB Farms cutting edge in the greenhouse, Farai has also undertaken the task of bolstering KB’s marketing. He has helped illuminate KB’s brand as an exemplary representation of what the California Cut Flower Industry has to offer; a huge variety of sustainably grown and sourced flowers available year-round makes both KB Farms and California as a whole, standouts in the cut flower industry.

Remembering Our Service Members

Memorial Day 2019

I was pleased this year that the Memorial Day Flowers Foundation added The Golden Gate National Cemetery in San Bruno to their program, this is where Joe is interned. Kitayama Brothers believe strongly in supporting this program and honoring our soldiers, especially the Memorial Day events held on the West Coast. We were able to supply over 35,000 stems of assorted flowers this year to different cemeteries.
