The origin of the Kids Inc. name
It’s a great story. When Edio and Joan Delfino (the ranch founders) began ranch marketing in the early 1960’s, they told their children that they could name the ranch. There were seven children and they sat down after dinner one night and thought up a few names–“Farm Kids”, “Little Safeway”, “Kids Incorporated”, and others less memorable. They took the final vote and “Kids Inc.” got the most votes… “Kids Incorporated” was born in 1964 when it became the name of the apple ranch … not because the ranch was for kids but because kids worked on the ranch.
It’s important to the present ranch owner, Chris Delfino, (son of Edio and Joan) to carry on this tradition of kids working on the farm and bake shop. Good work ethic, pride in your product and much more is instilled in this next generation of workers.
