Master the Art of the Tomato!
Brad Gates of Wild Boar Farms Tells You How
on Day 1 of our Mother's Day Party!
Wild Boar Farms

Is there anything as delicious as a fresh-picked tomato?

No watery, hothouse-grown grocery-store tomato could ever hope to compare to the rich, earthy taste of a homegrown beauty. And here to tell you all about how to grow PERFECT tomatoes is our favorite tomato farmer – Brad Gates of Wild Boar Farms – on Saturday, May 11, Day 1 of our Mother's Day Party!

Brad calls his tomatoes "heirlooms of the future" and he's spent the last 15 years breeding and growing adaptable and disease resistant tomatoes at his organic farm in Suisun Valley. Using heirlooms as a foundation, he's tested, trialed and introduced myriad new varieties with extreme flavor, bright stripes and beautiful bi-colors.

Check out the feature article on Brad and his tomatoes in the New York Times!
