April 2010 - Featured Farm: Fernandes Family Dairies


 

The Joe Fernandes family calls Tulare County home. Joe and five sons own and operate three dairies outside the town of Porterville, with the scenic Sierra Nevada Mountains rising to the east. Fernandes brothers Greg, Gary, Frank, Jared, and Josh comprise the third generation in the family to farm, and all have unique responsibilities in managing the business which includes five thousand Holstein cows and five thousand replacement heifers. The three dairies employ 50 people and share 1,800 hectares of land used for double-cropping of wheat and corn, alfalfa production, and prune and pistachio trees.
