Both Italian Americans with family roots in Sicily, farming is in Jean and Phil’s blood.

Phil’s father Dominic Cosentino, starting caring for this land in 1945. A hard-working man, Dominic built a modest produce farm. Over time Dominic, with his four sons--Phil, Sal, Marino and Dominic grew Cosentino’s Market into a collection of three neighborhood grocery stores that have become a favorite of locals.

Over the years Jean and Phil raised their family, as Jean worked as an elementary school teacher, Phil and his brother worked at Cosentino’s Market, all while caring for the orchard.

Today, J&P Farms is still thriving as the last working orchard in Santa Clara Valley. Jean and Phil with help from their family, enjoy working the land and spending time with their loyal friends and customers who visit their fruit stand.

Jean and Phil are both an active part of the San Jose community for decades. They enjoy spending time with the large family, many friends and of course life on the the farm.

Phil is known as “Mr. Produce” and can be heard regularly on KLIV radio with The Produce Report.
