Church Brothers Farms

Steve Church founded Church Brothers Farms in 1999 with his brother Tom. The pair started back in high school working in iceberg lettuce fields where they gained a strong work ethic. Tom Church founded River Ranch in 1981, providing the foundation for what Church Brothers has become today. Their primary products include broccoli, cauliflower, celery, iceberg, and romaine. In 2002, the brothers formed a partnership with the Gills, David and Steve, to form the processing company True Leaf where they create pre-cut and mixed items with the commodity items grown by Church Brothers.
“As a young child, my grandmother had a garden in our backyard and while she was cooking, she would ask me to go pick jalapenos, tomatoes, and squash. That garden made a big impression on me and my life. I believe that is where my passion for food and fellowship developed. On Sundays our family would gather at my grandparents’ home to eat and laugh. I believe that no matter what happens in life there is no better feeling than gathering around the dinner table with your family and friends.”
