Bruce J. Rominger and his brother Rick Rominger own Rominger Brothers Farms in Winters, California. Their family emigrated to California from Germany in the 1850’s and began farming in Yolo County in 1870. Prior to his career in agriculture Bruce received his Bachelor of Science degree in Plant Science from UC Davis in 1980. He grows tomatoes, rice, wheat, corn, sunflowers, oat hay, wine grapes, almonds and walnuts; he loves that he is able to do something different every day. PCPfarmers-097As a “steward of the land” Bruce believes that we are responsible for leaving the land and resources for future generations. Bruce’s beliefs fall in line with his sustainable agriculture practices by incorporating cover crops, minimum tillage, hedgerows and tail water ponds in his farming. Bruce also hopes he can grow the best tomatoes with the smallest environmental footprint. PCPfarmers-084Bruce thinks that having direct input to the management of one of your major processors is very satisfying. Bruce is a fifth generation farmer and has been a PCP grower for 30 years. Bruce enjoys the company of his wife, Robyn and his three kids Justin, John and Rachel. He also spends his time serving on the Local Irrigation district Board of Directors, California Tomato Growers Association Board of Directors, and Advisory Board of Winters High School FFA programs.
