Program:  Protea Growers        Speaker:  Mel Resendiz

In early 1977, Ismael ("Mel") Resendiz and his brothers Porfirio, Raul and Ramon immigrated to California
and began their careers in the floral industry. 
Since much of their background had been in farming in various parts of Mexico,
it was natural for the brothers to pursue farming opportunities.
Mel took a temporary position working as a farmhand at Zorro Protea Farms in the hills east of Rancho Santa Fe
and soon realized his passion for flowers and plants - particularly South African and Australian varieties.

"Resendiz Brothers Protea Growers LLC was etablished in 1999 with a passion for growing exotic flowers
and a commitment to providing customers with the highest quality products and service.
With decades of farming experience in California's ideal Mediterranean climate,
we delight in growing spectacular flowers for customers who demand unique and creative floral options.
What began as a business focused on proteas has grown into a "boutique" - type flower farm
offering a vast selection of the most distinctive American Grown flowers.
In addition to proteas, we now cultivate more than 350 varieties of flowers and foliages, and our selection continues to grow!"
