Ocean Mist Farms Gold Standard Artichoke

Ocean Mist Farms has been the Gold Standard of Artichokes® for nearly 100 years.


And that's just the beginning.

Growing Region
Castroville, CA is where we call home, and is in fact, where our very first artichokes were planted over nine decades ago.  Our four ambitious founders selected the Mediterranean-like climate in this central California area because of its similarity to this Italian vegetable's native home across the Atlantic. Castroville's mild, coastal temperatures are perfect for growing the Gold Standard of Artichokes®!
