Description

La Vigne was founded in 1994 by Helene Beck after she and her husband moved to North County San Diego.  In 1982 they had converted a neglected avocado farm into an abundant grove, producing fifteen different fruit crops, all of which are 100% organic and biodynamic. (Since 1991)  The idea for La Vigne products sprouted from a grove excess of persimmons and kumquats.

"People are becoming aware that natural food is their best medicine, and I feel I can help in a small way through my farming practices," Helene comments.  As a visionary, she takes unusual fruit without much market presence, and creates exciting and innovative condiments.  The quality of the soil and its nutrients makes a considerable difference in the flavor the food grown.

The grove is devoted to less-mainstream fruits, including kumquats, persimmons, cherimoyas, minneolas, and blood oranges.  Some of the gourmet products created under the La Vigne label are:
