History/Philosophy: In 1907 Fred's maternal grandparents immigrated to the United States from Liguria Province in northeast Italy. They purchased a 17 acre farm near Stockton where they built their family home.Fred's mother was born and raised on that property. She continued to live there with her husband, who had immigrated from Bellinzona, Switzerland in 1928. They and their 3 children subsequently labored under the dictates of subsistence farming. Fred learned from his childhood upbringing: Make a better life for yourself. Consequently, he attended college, worked for 28 years as a government employee, retired, turned born-again workaholic, and returned to his roots, farming! In 1983 Fred and Joann purchased the family farm from his parents and are now living happily ever after harvesting and marketing stone fruit and nuts. David, a Cal Poly grad, helps his dad manage the farm. Fred Jr., a Graduate of UC Davis, West Virginia University and Western University College of Veternary Medicine, has continued on to persue a  career as a large animal vet in West Virginia. As a small farm family, the Minazzolis practice hands-on farming. At any given time, you can find Fred and David working side-by-side as they strive for perfection, only the best for their customers! That's their philosophy.
