Artichoke Growers & Producers

Castroville, California is the self proclaimed "Artichoke Center of the World" and is home to the California Artichoke Advisory Board, numerous commercial growers (nearly 2/3rds of the state's crop comes from farms in the Castroville area), and the Castroville Artichoke Festival.
