Joe S. Silva was born in Livingston CA in 1916. He was raised on his family’s farm where he started a small dairy in his teen years in an effort to lend his financial help to his parents. In 1933, he converted his land to yam and sweet potato production. Joe passed in 2002, and Doreva Produce is currently run by Ben and Aaron Silva, his grandsons. They are committed to constantly improving the health of their produce, working with UC Davis plant breeders and the USDA to ensure high quality. Today, they grow garnet, red, and Japanese yams and several varieties of sweet potatoes.
