Picking Perfection

The purpose of this blog is to share our farming story. We hope you will find it interesting and entertaining. We invite you to join us through our tough times and our triumphs as small family farmers. Feel free to ask questions and make comments. I (Nori) tell my farming history on this page. Mike’s is found on the Naylor Organics: Our Farm Story page.  Be sure to subscribe and follow our adventures.


Apparently I was destined to be a country girl.  Both my grandparents were small family farmers, so I spent a lot of time on the farm.  My mother’s parents immigrated from Russia and grew grapes for raisins.  My father’s parents emigrated from Kansas during the dust bowl.  They grew row crops including cotton and black-eyed peas.

39-years and Counting

When I got married, my husband was not working on the farm.  We moved to northern California so I could attend University of California, Davis. After one year of marriage, we returned to the farm because his father could no longer handle the day-to-day activities.  That was in 1979.  We converted to organic practices in 1984 and were certified organic in 1990.

There is no better place to raise children than in the country, in my opinion.  Our two sons grew up covered with dirt from making mud pies and creating landscapes for their toy vehicles.  Neither of them are working with us on the farm at this time.  We are mentoring someone who may take over our operation someday.  In the meantime, we are doing our best to produce the best tasting, most beautiful organic fruit possible.

  1. Nori, this blog is absolutely amazing! You are the example I point to for other growers in the Top 10 program to show exactly what they should do! I love to follow what goes on at the farm, and Brianna cannot wait for her visit next year, but she gets to follow along in the meantime!

  2. Hi Nori, Great to see this blog, It reminds me of my childhood memories of farming at my Grandparents place.
