Babé Farms Holiday BBQ

Babé Farms employs over 300 people, and every year around the holidays we hold an employee appreciation barbecue and raffle. Our office staff prepares the food and the owners, Jeff and Judy Lundberg provide plenty of fabulous gifts for the raffle. A big congratulations to the grand prize winner, Sergio Lopez, who took home a 55 inch SUHD TV! Babé Farms wouldn't be what it is today without it's wonderful employees - we appreciate their hard work and loyalty to our company!

Babé Farms Christmas Party 2016

This year, the Babé Farms office Christmas Party was held at Presqu'ile Winery in Santa Maria. With a beautiful view of the Santa Maria Valley, Presqu'ile is always the perfect venue for a party or event - not to mention their amazing wine selection. Catering for the party was provided by The Swiss Restaurant, including hearty Santa Maria-style appetizers and of course, plenty of Babé Farms veggies. Owners, Jeff and Judy Lundberg were definitely in the Christmas spirit with their wonderful gift raffle! We would like to thank Presqu'ile Winery, The Swiss Restaurant, Jeff, Judy, Carrie, and everyone else who helped make the party a huge success!
