Michael F. Locati as you know him, owner and operator, of Locati Farms, Inc. has decided to lay down his hat and pass on the family legacy to his nephew, Michael J. Locati. As if transitions weren’t hard enough, these two have the same first and last name to make it even more confusing.

Michael J. was born in Walla Walla, named for his uncle, and raised as the eldest son of Ambrose Locati Jr. He grew up around the family business and learned about agriculture from both his father and uncle. He has slowly been molded by the business and developed a passion for Walla Walla Sweet Onion production as well as The Walla Walla Valley. Upon completion of high school in 2008, Michael J. attended Washington State University to earn a degree in Agriculture Technology and Production Management. Graduating top of his class, Michael J. has excelled in his ability to learn, adapt, and execute in the field of agriculture. His passion and focus on perfection has aided tremendously in making this transition smooth.

Here at Locati Farms we are all committed to customer service and that means continuously providing you with the quality products you request. This transition will continue over the next three to four years with Michael F. Locati playing a large role in consulting Michael J. as he navigates the leadership position of Locati Farms. We hope you will join us in welcoming Michael J. Locati to the team and continue to support us as the fourth generation of the Locati family as he takes over the family business built on the simple values of honesty and hard work. Thank you!
