Victoria Island Farms Asparagus

by Colin Lyons, produce buyer
Wednesday, May 18, 2011
Located in the San Joaquin river valley in California, Victoria Island asparagus has been family run for nearly fifty years. The name of the farm refers to the section, or “island”, of the delta surrounded on all sides by flowing water. Formerly a river bed, the land has rich soil with a high level of peat. This, combined with a high pH level, makes for an ideal location for growing fine quality asparagus.
