VR Green Farms story


We're all about celebrating all things from the Southern California garden, farm, orchard and coastline.

So we created an exclusive collection of local gourmet items along with handmade gifts, collectibles, and fine art prints centered around our local California cuisine, Italy visits, and nightly sunset viewing here in Dana Point, CA. Take a look around and enjoy the California landscape as much as we do.

We have grown, picked, and delivered fresh produce to several top-notch chefs throughout Southern California for over ten years now and have built long lasting relationships with all of them. We have been fortunate to watch and learn new chef cooking techniques and recipes along the way and many of them show up in our exclusive collection of culinary artwork included here.

Being from Italian roots, I returned four times to my ancestral family home (Tricarico, Italy) to capture Old World recipes and meet/visit our distant Italian cousins. Each trip started and ended with life-changing visits to Rome and Florence which all inspire me to this day. I encourage everyone to make the effort to discover family roots and spend time with ancestral relatives. It will change your life in a good way.

Our Catalina Sunset artwork was captured from two stationary locations in Dana Point, California over a period of 22 years and continues today. Over 37,000 photos were taken from 1996-1919 almost every evening at sunset.

Thank you for visiting. Comments and suggestions are always welcome.
