At first, there were two. In 1976 Susan & Stan Devoto moved from El Cerrito, CA to the quiet hills of Sonoma County. It was there in western Sebastopol the couple started farming micro greens on an old apple orchard. Soon enough, Susan & Stan developed a long-lasting love for the cultivation of apples and flowers. A few years down the road the Susan & Stan bought their homestead property and decided to realize their love for farming by planting 20 acres of heirloom apples and specialty cut flowers. Over 30 years later, after welcoming three daughters into the world and losing Susan to cancer, Stan now farms over 80 varieties of heirloom apples, specialty cut flowers, and Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes on five different properties throughout the county.
Sacrificing profits by putting the environment and health first.
Since sustainability and health are important to us at Devoto Gardens & Orchards, we are proud to say that we dry-farm our certified organic apples. We pride ourselves in what we grow and are glad to say that our flowers and apples are grown without synthetic pesticides, fungicides or herbicide free. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
Unified by a love for the Earth and everything that lives in it.
Devoto Gardens & Orchards was founded with a love for the land in mind. We enjoy to watch our farm throughout its annual cycle and enjoy even more when the fruits of our labor come to fruition. If you would like to come and see our farm, please contact us.
