  A century and a half after they were first introduced to California, Chinese Gogi berries are getting a fresh start, with their anti-oxidant benefits front and center. They’re now being grown at a single location in Sonoma County.

In their native China, Goji berries are grown on outdoor farms, but Jay Jensen isn't sure that would ever be practical in California.

Goji Farm USA will hope an open house where visitors can pick and taste the berries—and leave—on Friday afternoon. You can find event details here.
