With Josie, Family Comes First
In the 1920’s, Josie Braga hand-clipped baby lettuce from the home ranch for her family and loved ones. Little did she know, that decades later, their family farm would continue the tradition of growing fresh organic produce for so many other families.
For the Love of Nonnie
Josie’s Organics is named after “Nonnie Josie,” the grandmother to the third generation of the Braga family. Josie & Sebastian Braga bought the Home Ranch and built a farmstead raising dairy cattle and growing hay, sugar beets, tomatoes, corn and lettuce. Nearly a century later, the Braga family honors Josie by sharing her name and commitment to providing fresh, organic vegetables and leafy greens.
