Grewal Bros. Farming

Grewal Bros. Farming was established in 1985 and is currently owned by brothers Ranbir Grewal (Left), Bob Grewal (Middle), and Gurdial Grewal (Right). The brothers and their mother, Sarjit Grewal, began this business when they purchased a 52 acre block in Kerman, CA. Over the years, they have grown Grewal Bros. Farming into a large, diversified farming operation in both Fresno and Madera county. They grow cling peaches, almonds, pistachios, wine grapes, raisin grapes, and cocktail grapes. Grewal Bros. Farming prides itself on being a true family farm—where everyone in the family, from the adults to the children, have done their part to help the business run successfully.

The very first connection to Pacific Coast Producers was through their father, Atma Grewal, who came to the United States from India in 1959. Grewal purchased a 100 acre peach ranch in the Yuba City area in 1967 and farmed this land until 1972. It was during this time that he sold his cling peaches to Stokely Van Kemp—which is what we now know as Pacific Coast Producers. Grewal eventually sold the ranch and moved to Fresno County in 1972. This is where all three sons attended grade school, high school, and college.

Grewal Bros. Farming implements sustainable farming practices and are involved in a variety of programs, such as Blue Diamond Orchard Stewardship Incentive Program, Cool Farm Alliance Program, and NRCS Conservation Program. They have implemented no till practices in their orchards, while also planting annual cover crops. Owl boxes, hedge rows, and native flowers are also seen throughout their ranch. Additionally, Grewal Bros. Farming was involved in NRCS Ground Water Recharge Program in 2022. The brothers have worked hard to convert the whole ranch from flood irrigation to drip and micro irrigation. This change, in addition to the use of soil moisture probes, has saved about 40% of their water usage.

Sustainable farming practices are high priority for the Grewal brothers. They recycle their orchards back into the soil by shredding and chipping. Soil health and buildup are also improved by applying compost every year.

Grewal Bros. Farming became official members of Pacific Coast Producers in the early 1990s with a peach membership. Over the years, they have increased their membership to about 4,500 tons of cling peaches. They also farm 160 acres of organic cling peaches for Pacific Coast Producers. The most recent addition to their membership was a few years ago with 450 tons of cocktail grapes.

The goal of Grewal Bros. Farming is to continue using sustainable farming practices to produce the best quality fruits for Pacific Coast Producers. Each year will bring challenges and headwinds to the growing seasons, but the members of Grewal Bros. Farming are committed to working together to navigate through each season and consistently deliver excellence.
