Sterino Farms

Grown Fresh in the Puyallup Valley. Our History »


George Richter was one of the last of three generations of original berry farmers in the Puyallup Valley and over the years had developed some unique varieties of berries. While much of the original land has been developed into housing projects and warehouses, these special berry plants were moved to other farming sites and the crops continue to be cultivated by Jake Sterino of Sterino Farms.  Jake has carried on the philosophy that good berries are best when fresh.  Picked fresh daily, these special berries are then air freighted overnight to locations throughout the United States. These special varieties are some of the featured products available to the general public when in season at the Sterino Farms Produce Market in Puyallup Washington.


Selected for flavor and shipping qualities, our six varieties of blackberries are harvested starting in the last week of June all the way into early Fall.
Gold Raspberry
If you desire a raspberry with a subtle taste that doesn't overpower, our Gold Raspberry is the answer. It's ideal for garnishing that perfect dinner or dessert.
A sweeter version of the boysenberry, this intensely flavored, succulent fruit is produced primarily in the Pacific Northwest with its nurturing, gentle rains.
Our Tayberry is a hybrid cross between and Oregon blackberry and a Scottish raspberry, making it perfect for pies, jams and sauce.
Black Currant
The black currant is very versatile. With its superior juice quality, it can be used for crêpes, jelly, cheese, and glazing sauces for meats, poultry and fish.
Red Currant
Our red currant is a beautiful, translucent berry that glistens in the late afternoon sunshine. It's popular for juice, jelly, scones or sauces.
White Currant
Harvested in late June through July at the peak of its flavor, the white currant is a sweet, acidic-tasting berry that's blessed with high juice content.
An ideal choice to add to a salad, for baking a pie or preparing a sauce. The gooseberry is available from Richter's in both the red and green variety.
Available starting late February through mid August, our hothouse and field varieties of rhubarb have a clean, clear, crisp taste for great pies, cobblers and other desserts.
