Driscoll's partners with independent farmers to grow Driscoll's unique varieties of berries. Many of Driscoll's independent farmers have been growing for us for several decades and generations.
The majority of Driscoll’s berries are grown in the United States, with California being the largest growing region. To find out more about the exact locations where our berries are grown, click here.
To learn more about where your berries are grown, read more about Where We Grow.
Driscoll’s is a leading supplier of organic strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. Driscoll’s organic berries are grown by independent farmers whose growing and handling operations are certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF), a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) accredited certifying agency.
All of our berries are hand-picked and field-packed, with the exception of blueberries which are sometimes picked using harvesting machines and/or packed in packing facilities.
In order to meet our consumer's year round demand, we grow berries both in the US and in other countries. All of our independent farmers, no matter what country they grow our berries in, must adhere to our very strict growing policies set forth by the USDA and FDA.
Driscoll's is the largest producer of organic berries and will continue to offer a choice to consumers based on preference. We plan to expand our organic program while still offering a conventional option.
Driscoll's does not currently grow hydroponic, aquaponic or aeroponic crops. Driscoll's supply comes from both in-ground production and containerized production which is very distinct from hydroponics which is a water-based production system.
The use of Methyl Bromide is strictly prohibited in all production fields. The use of Methyl Bromide as a pre-plant fumigant at the nursery level is being phased out as we advance new nursery innovation practices.
Driscoll's berries can be purchased at most large chain supermarkets and club stores throughout the United States and Canada. We encourage you to contact the store first to confirm that the berries you want are available and in stock. Many factors including weather can affect berry availability. For a list of stores, visit Where to Buy.
Driscoll's offers year-round organic and conventionally grown berries, including strawberries, long stem strawberries, red and sunshine raspberries, blueberries and blackberries.
Each berry has different characteristics you should look for when selecting only the freshest and most delicious berries. For detailed information about how to choose the best berries, visit our Blueberry, Blackberry, Raspberry, and Strawberry pages.
No, berries don't continue to ripen after they've been harvested.
All fresh berries are highly perishable and we recommend that you refrigerate them in their clamshell package at all times until eaten or used as an ingredient. Refrigeration will extend their freshness and shelf life.
As with all fresh produce, we recommend that you wash your berries before enjoying them. However, you should never wash your berries until just before you are ready to eat or use them as the moisture will decrease their shelf life.
Yes, fresh berries can be easily frozen and enjoyed until you are ready to use them. Here are some helpful tips about freezing berries.
Driscoll’s has a strict Quality Assurance Program in place from the field through harvest and distribution. We work hand-in-hand with our distribution and retail partners to make certain the berries you purchase are of the highest quality. Many factors can affect the shelf life of our berries. The location of the farm, weather, growing practices and the type of plant can all affect the freshness of the berry. Due to these varying factors, a ‘best used by’ date isn’t applied. We recommend consuming the berries soon after purchase. For more information on how to care for and handle our berries, please visit our Blueberry, Blackberry, Raspberry, and Strawberry pages.
Driscoll’s has several different patented varieties of all its berry types. Our independent farmers do not harvest of pack by variety, nor are the varieties listed on our labels.

Driscoll’s has a stringent International Food Safety program in place. Our program ensures that our berries are produced with the highest standards of safety regardless of where they are grown. Driscoll’s has imposed upon itself and the independent farmers who grow Driscoll’s berries, a comprehensive program of third-party audits, product testing, and grower education. To validate the program, audits are performed around the world for food safety, environmental welfare, and the fair and ethical treatment of workers. Independent third party audits are performed around the world to validate food safety systems on all ranches.
No, Driscoll’s berries are naturally sweet, flavorful and beautiful looking. Driscoll’s mission is to continually delight our berry consumers by providing “Only the Finest Berries.” Our patented berry varieties come from years of breeding to naturally produce the best tasting berry for our consumers.
All of our berries, both conventional and organic, are non-GMO. Driscoll's Research and Development department is the industry leader in the development of premium berry plants that utilize only proven natural and traditional breeding processes.
Driscoll’s primary concern is for the wholesomeness of our product and the safety of berry consumers. For this reason, any pesticide used must be in compliance with federal and state laws, and must comply with the registration policies of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA). They must also be within the legal tolerances enforced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (US FDA). To reduce the use of pesticides, Driscoll’s independent farmers use an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) method, which uses a combination of natural and synthetic means to reduce disease and control pests.
Irradiation is a process that preserves food by using a low dose of high energy gamma rays to kill any germs and insects, thus slowing the maturation process and extending shelf life. Driscoll’s does not use irradiation because we believe our harvest and cooling processes are highly effective in maintaining fruit quality and shelf life.
Driscoll's has a stringent Global Food Safety program in place. Our Global Food Safety program ensures that our berries are produced with the highest standards of safety regardless of where they’re grown. The independent farmers who grow Driscoll's berries must strictly adhere to our Food Safety program. To ensure compliance, Driscoll's conducts over 2,500 audits annually at fields, packing houses and coolers.
Driscoll’s berries are some of the most delicious, nutritious, disease-fighting fruits you can eat. With their high antioxidant levels, berries are also considered superfoods because their health benefits may help the body fight off disease and slow the effects of aging. Berries are also high in vitamins and low in calories, so they’re a perfect fruit to include in your daily diet. For more information about the health benefits of Driscoll’s berries, visit our Blueberry, Blackberry, Raspberry, and Strawberry pages.
Each variety of berry has its own unique nutritional values and functional benefits. Supercharge your diet and maximize berry health benefits by enjoying the entire berry patch.

Our clamshell packages are stamped with the international recycling code, which is three chasing arrows within a triangle with a number inside to designate the level of recyclability of the package. Currently our packaging is marked with the recycling code #1 which is the most acceptable recyclable packaging. Containers are PET, Polyethylene Terephthalate.
Driscoll’s doesn’t sell or ship berries direct to consumers. You can find our premium berries in grocery and club stores around the country. Please visit Where to Buy to find a list of retailers that carry Driscoll’s berries throughout the year.
Because Driscoll’s unique variety of plants are patented, our plants and seeds are not for sale and can’t be grown by anyone other than our independent farming partners.
