About Us

Josie’s Organics are grown today in the same, fertile California valley where our grandparents, young Swiss immigrants Sebastian and Josie Braga, started farming in the 1920s. Now, keeping their high standards for quality, integrity and sustainability in mind, a third generation of Bragas runs the family business.

As a young boy, our president and CEO, Rod Braga, fondly remembers watching “Nonnie Josie” hand-clipping leaves of baby lettuce. She served only the best seasonal produce to her family then, and today we tend the farm with the same care.

Sebastian and Josie would be proud. Nearly a century ago, they started out growing beets, tomatoes, onions, hay and corn. Today, along with employees who have been with the company since our youngest cousin was born, we harvest more than 25 varieties of premium, USDA certified organic fresh vegetables, and deliver them to people all over the world.

With  Josie’s Organics, we honor our grandmother’s commitment to goodness, family and community, and make it easier to include delicious, healthy fresh vegetables in every meal.

Throughout our website, you can learn more about Josie Braga and our family, meet the farmers growing Josie’s Organics today and watch our “Meet the Farmer” video, see farm photos of our family’s organic ranches, and read our Josie’s Promise of sustainability and quality.

You can also find a store, browse recipes inspired by Josie’s favorite dishes, get fun activities for kids and ideas to encourage them to eat their vegetables, read tips from Josie’s blog, contact us, and sign up to receive occasional emails with recipes and other meal and nutrition info.

We hope you enjoy exploring Josie’s Organics as much as we love carrying on the Braga family tradition of sustainable farming.
