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.
