Farm History

The Original Manassero Farms – Orange Counties Berry Finest Celebrates over 95 years of manassero family farming and under Farmer Dan Manassero for over 41 Years.

I am proud to be part of a third generation farming family in Orange County. My grandfather, James Manassero, came to Orange County via Italy and began farming here in 1922.

During high school and college I started working for my father Steve Manassero Sr. and my uncle Emille Boisseranc Jr. At that time they were farming under the name Boisseranc-Manassero.

In 1976 my brother, Steve, and I started farming under the name Manassero Farms. Although my brother went out on his own years ago, I am happy to still be farming some 40 years later under the name – The Original Manassero Farms.
During the years of working with my father and uncle I learned how to grow the most delectable, juicy, strawberries in Orange County. Our berries are picked every morning at the height of ripeness and hand delivered to our stands from one of our local fields.

I am proud to carry on the tradition of local, sustainable farming and providing our community with the very freshest produce.

I thank you for your business and support during these 40 years. It is my sincere hope that you will literally enjoy the fruits of my labor.
