Underwood Ranches, a producer grower/shipper is most widely known
for pioneering baby vegetables, spring mix and other specialty vegetables.  It is a family farm located in Ventura County that grows a variety of produce for retail and food service customers, primarily jalapeno peppers, blueberries, baby bunched and large red, golden, and candy striped beets, baby carrots, fennel, artichokes, celery root, turnips, rutabagas, parsnips, and other specialty and commodity vegetables.

We have a long history of farming in the area going back to 1867, when the Mahans first settled in Camarillo. Lima beans were important in the early days to both sides of the family. Urban Underwood was a pioneer lemon grower but also planted an occasional crop of lettuce to satisfy the gambling spirit that is the nature of all farmers. Over the years the crops have transitioned from limas and walnuts, to carrots, pole tomatoes, fordhook limas and broccoli for the Oxnard Frozen Foods, cannery tomatoes for Hunts, and always fresh produce for the market. Today the farm grows and ships fresh fruits and vegetables for retail and food service customers.

For 50 years, Underwood Ranches has been growing peppers from bells to jalapeños. By 2013 the farm was growing 2,000 acres of red jalapeños. Through searching for the best varieties, securing quality land for production and developing the best sustainable growing techniques, Underwood Ranches became the backbone of the explosive growth of Sriracha. Its popularity was founded on high quality, fresh peppers. That tradition will extend into the future as Underwood Ranches rolls out new products. The heart and soul of the business goes into growing healthy and flavorful fruits and vegetables. The greatest passion and most rewarding aspect is the challenge of peppers.
