Ishibashi Farm Stand Is Open!!!!!!

I am so happy to report that Tom T. Ishibashi and his family (including his wonderful niece Karen) have re-opened their stand at the Torrance Airport (at 24955 Crenshaw Boulevard)!

They have their first of the season strawberries and some beautiful poppies, with other flowers soon to debut once the weather warms up a bit.

I was lucky enough to spend 1/2 an hour chatting with him and catching up. He is one of the featured farmers in my book on the history of farming in the South Bay and Torrance and he reminded me that this year marks the 60th year that the Ishibashi family has been farming on this stretch of land. How lucky we are to have had them all these years and to still have Tom here!

Stop by and visit and buy your first of the season berries, they are good and only going to get better!
