Wild Boar Farms, located in the Napa Valley, offers the most stunning-looking tomato varieties each season. Brad Gates is the owner of Wild Boar Farms, and he has been breeding tomatoes and growing heirlooms since 2000. In fact, he has bred and developed several dozen new tomato varieties focusing on bi-color and striped varieties with extreme flavor. The Farm employs organic and sustainable practices and all their tomatoes are non-GMO. The Wild Boar varieties have received good performance feedback for both the home and market gardeners, even in areas with more challenging climates. So grow something new this season — these tomatoes are sure to be the most talked about veggies in your garden this year!
