Headquartered in Castroville, California, The Ocean Mist Farms is the largest grower of fresh artichokes in the United States. Farming artichokes year-round in three ideal California growing regions: Castroville, Oxnard and Coachella – plus Baja, California – each area is known for fertile ground and productive microclimates.

Ocean Mist Farms In-Store Products



Globe artichokes are a large and meaty variety that Ocean Mist Farms produces year-round. In the spring, our Gold Standard artichokes are grown in Castroville, CA and during the winter months, artichokes are grown in the Coachella Valley, a dry desert region of Southern California.



Asparagus is nearly grown year-round, taking a break in production during July and August. Grown in prime regions to produce the most flavorful, fresh product of superior quality. In fact, the harvest teams and quality assurance inspectors make sure that only the highest quality asparagus spears are harvested, packed and delivered.

Brussels Sprouts


Simplify dinner time with microwavable whole Brussels sprouts. Simply open the resealable bag, drizzle or sprinkle in your favorite seasonings like salt, pepper, olive oil, garlic salt or chicken broth. Reseal and microwave for five minutes. Finish them off by roasting in the oven or on the grill.


Ocean Mist Cauliflower

A popular “carb replacement” for its unique texture and flavor, cauliflower can be enjoyed by itself or in a savory dish. Roasted, riced, grilled and sautéed are just a few of the ways to prepare this versatile and nutritious fresh vegetable.
