INNOVATORS SINCE 1984

Harris Family Farms, founded in Chowchilla, California in 1984, grew out of a family farming operation whose origins date back to The Great Depression, when Francis Harris moved his family out of Alabama to the Central Valley to try his hand at farming. Marion Harris, son of Francis, followed his dad into agriculture after serving in World War II. Initially, Marion farmed in Tulare County and later as far away as Arizona, but he eventually brought the family back to its roots, moving everyone to Chowchilla in 1974. Today, while the business is a large, vertically integrated farming operation it is still, at heart, a family venture managed by President and CEO, Russell Harris, the grandson of Francis Harris.
