Located along the central coast of California in Castroville—known as the “Artichoke Center of the World”—Pezzini Farms is a family-run heirloom artichoke farm and market that also offers gifts and products planners can share with attendees. For bulk corporate gifting, Sean Pezzini, a fourth-generation artichoke farmer, names several Pezzini Farms-branded options: artichoke salsa, artichoke seasoning, artichoke flower-scented candles, coffee
mugs, tote bags, apparel, and more. Discounts are available for bulk purchases.

“All these products are centered on the artichoke, which is unique and special in itself,” Pezzini says. “We then work with some great producers to create these products, oftentimes using quality local ingredients.” Pezzini Farms will typically have 12 to 60-plus of any given product on hand, and with a three-to-four-week notice the team can
arrange to obtain more if a planner requires it.

If your event is in the Monterey area, in-person pickups can be arranged at the farm to avoid waiting on shipping times. And in addition to the farm-branded merchandise, products by other local companies are also available for corporate gifting at Pezzini, including items like Big Sur Salts’ “Castrochill” blend, with salt directly harvested from the sea along the Big Sur coastline.
