The Bonipak story begins in 1932 when Milo Ferini and Dominick Ardantz formed a partnership to develop a long-term family farming operation. They chose to settle in the Santa Maria Valley with its rich, fertile soil and mild year-round climate. These optimal growing conditions provided the foundation to produce premium quality produce throughout the year. Located on California’s Central Coast, the Santa Maria Valley allows for longer growing seasons, giving Bonipak a competitive advantage over other growing regions.
Bonipak's founders understood location was just one step to ensure quality and consistent supply. Their vision required the need to control the entire process, from growing, to packing, processing, and shipping. Today, our vertically integrated “seed to sale” approach is carried out by the entire Bonipak family.
