Established in 1988 in Los Banos, California, A-Bar Ag Enterprises is family-owned and operated by Arnold Barcellos and his two sons, Aaron and Aric. Today, the Barcellos farm has expanded to 7,000 acres where they grow almonds, asparagus, cotton, pistachios, pomegranates, tomatoes, and other commodities.
