Making Dreams Come True
The Original Manassero Farms is celebrating 100 years of family farming. The farms’ 4 locations in Orange County are the culmination of years of hard work by owner & farmer, Dan Manassero. Dan is part of a third generation farming family here in Orange County. His grandfather, James, started farming in Yorba Linda, CA in 1922. Learning the tricks of the trade from his grandfather, father & uncle, Dan has become one of Orange County’s best certified organic & conventional farmers.
Over the years, Dan has been a first-hand witness to how such influences from governmental regulations, labor resources, trade, large commercial growers, & big box stores have changed the face of urban farming. Dan & his wife, Anne, both know that you have to be flexible to keep up with growing trends in farming & lifestyle.
Dan & Anne feel blessed that their seemingly separate interests (Dan’s in farming & Anne’s in design, cooking & marketing) have come together in their newest location, Manassero Farms Irvine Market. It is in this location where you will directly enjoy the best of them both. The Market is a unique one-of-a-kind blend of a fresh farm market, event space & gift store. There’s always a fun “happy surprise” expressed by customers that come in for the first time & exclaim how charming & fun the experience is. From the amazing produce that has been walked, not trucked-in, to the pick-your-own herb garden, private labeled jams, jellies, honeys, gourmet foods, hand made soaps, lotions & candles. The market is an experience that can’t be matched anywhere else in OC.
While Dan’s obvious influence is in all of the edibles, Anne’s influence can be found in all the surroundings. Anne has brought her design influence to the farm in their special events venue aka “The Barn”. There customers will find an artfully decorated space full of architectural salvage, rustic tables, & elegant comfort. You can enjoy gourmet farm inspired chef dinners, quick lunches, and any variety of private events tailored to your specifications.
