Ocean Mist Farms is planning activities throughout 2014 to mark its 90th anniversary.

The Castroville, Calif.-based grower-shipper of artichokes, Brussels sprouts and many other crops was founded in 1924.

Plans include:

  • a redesign of the company website;
  • a new website for the Artichoke Club;
  • branding the original root stock variety, which dates to 1924, as an Ocean Mist Farms Heirloom Artichoke; and
  • a video on the company’s 90-year history.

Ocean Mist will be honored for that history and its community involvement at the annual Castroville Artichoke Festival — scheduled for May 31 and June 1 at the Monterey County Fairgrounds.

“We are proud to reach this milestone together,” Ocean Mist Farms chief operating officer Joe Pezzini said in a news release. “Investing in quality people and farm land is the foundation of success and longevity for generations of Ocean Mist growers.”
