The vision of Green Valley Farm Supply was born out of a desire to meet specific needs of individual growers in the Coastal California and Desert production regions. This vision came to fruition in the Salinas Valley in 1999. In order to best serve the customers within the dynamic agricultural production industry, the organization was structured into three separate entities: Green Valley Farm Supply, Inc.- Crop Protection Chemical, Fertilizer, and Farm Supply warehousing and sales. Pinnacle Application, Inc.- Field services offering a full range of custom application and ground work. Kennedy Farm Services, Inc.- Full service crop consultation.
We currently operate out of two strategic locations. Our centralized location, in Gonzales, CA, serves Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Benito, Santa Clara, and San Luis Obispo Counties. At this location, we warehouse Crop Protection Chemicals for all of the major manufacturers, and pride ourselves on rapid, on-time deliveries. In addition, our fertilizer storage facilities are state of the art, and have the capability to blend liquid and dry products to meet the customer's specific agronomic needs.
We employ nine licensed Pest Control Advisers, with Certified Crop Advisers on staff as well. Our knowledgeable and experienced advisers consult on 40,000 acres of crops throughout the five counties. Our branch location, in Yuma, Arizona, was set up to serve the local, year-round growers as well as the Salinas Valley growers who move annually to the desert region for winter production. We cover all counties from Yuma to Maricopa in Arizona in addition to Imperial County, California. We offer the same goods and services to the produce, melon, field crop, and citrus growers in this region as we do in the Salinas Valley. Our three Pest Control Advisers are licensed in both California and Arizona, and consult on 10,000 acres of cropland.
In order to grow with the ever-changing agricultural industry, we continually strive to expand our product lines and our target markets. In 2010, we opened a retail store at the Gonzales, CA location that offers a full line of farm, safety, and harvesting supplies, as well as top quality animal feeds. We have extended our crop consulting services as well, to now include Berries, Grapes, and Turf and Ornamentals.
