Vang Family Farm

Bentley Vang & Ying Lee Vang

Bentley Vang has been farming in Clovis for 15 years with help from his wife, Ying Lee, and his fourteen children. Raised in a farming family in Lao, Bentley learned how to cultivate vegetables, rice, and other grains at an early age. He moved to the United States in 1976, and began growing cherry tomatoes and vegetables for sale to the wholesale market. Soon after, he joined farmers’ markets, and he has marketed his produce this way ever since.
