We always love the high-quality offerings of Jose Alcantar of Alcantar Organics. Jose grows a wide variety of vegetables and berries on two main plots tucked between the foothills and the 101 fwy in Carpinteria. Jose is as skilled as they come, and is one of the best people we know. He grew up farming with horses and cattle in the fields in Guanajuato, Mexico before becoming the foreman of famed Tutti Frutti Farms here on the Central Coast. Jose now farms for himself on about 14 organic acres and is a mentor to many up and coming younger farmers in the region.
