Cinco Estrellas is truly a family farm that has been organic from the beginning. Roberto’s three sons and two daughters were all raised there and attended the local high school in Junction City. Now his grandchildren’s swing-set and tricycles are as much a part of the landscape as the red and green rows of lettuce. Even the farm’s name was inspired by Roberto’s family: three sons + two daughters = five stars (cinco estrellas). Cinco Estrellas serves as an integral partner to Agricultural Connections with its year-round production of fresh vegetables, supplying a variety of the produce in the winter harvest boxes.
