Jordano's Visits Babé Farms

We have been busy with farm tours lately and our latest visitors were none other than our great friends Bibi and Laura from Jordano's Foodservice in Santa Barbara. Bibi has been a buyer for Jordano's for over 20 years and has worked closely with us to get our veggies out to fine chefs on the Central Coast. We'd like to thank her and Laura for taking the time to visit us!
