Wild Boar Farms Tomato

Wild Boar Farms

Brad Gates is known in the California Bay area as “the tomato guy.” He has always loved the outdoors and plants. After working Saturdays for a summer selling at farmers markets for a friend, he became fascinated with the farmers market scene and began growing “those weird non-red tomatoes.” His first year, he grew 500 tomato plants, and the next year 1000. Now 14 years later, he owns a farm and wholesale business that supplies tomatoes to Bay Area restaurants and businesses. He also hosts a series of Farm to Table events in mid to late August as the tomatoes ripen on his farm each year. Brad is proprietor of Wild Boar Farms near Napa, California, where he offers some of the most outrageous tomatoes available on the planet. Using heirloom genetics and mutations as a foundation, creating new varieties kept him interested. He enjoyed creating tomatoes with new flavors, new colors, and new shapes with a goal to create the most amazing tomato varieties there are. His main focus is on bi-color and striped varieties with extreme flavor and fascinating looks. We are quite delighted to offer several of Brad Gates’ most excellent varieties. All varieties are believed to be 'indeterminate' (long vines), unless specified 'determinate' (short vines).
