It’s with great sadness that Christopher Ranch reports that Don Christopher passed away on Dec. 12th, 2023.
Don Christopher in the field.
Don was a third-generation California farmer and a recognized innovator and leader in the agriculture industry. He passed peacefully, surrounded by family.
Don Christopher continued to transform the American garlic industry throughout his career. Starting with fresh garlic, he expanded to value-added products like peeled garlic, roasted garlic, jarred garlic and so much more. His legacy meant so much more than just garlic. It meant a commitment to local education and bettering the lives of so many in Gilroy, California.
The Christopher (Ranch) family.
He is survived by his wife Karen, two sons and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
