About Tanaka Farms

In 1998, Tanaka Farms decided to go to Responsible Farming Methods after land development forced them to move the farming operation from Irvine Center Drive and Bake Parkway. The farm is now situated in a valley in the heart of Irvine. It’s hard to believe that this beautiful farm can exist among all of the development in Orange County!
