Our Name and Chef Story

The name 30 Acres, is an homage to the 30 acre family farm that Chef Pedro grew up in. Located in Ecuador, it was a successful banana producing farm that was established by his Grandfather.

Pedro spent his early childhood surrounded by its beauty, where his family truly lived a farm to table lifestyle. Meals were prepared fresh every day by his grandmother, for all the farm hands and family alike, using fruits, vegetables, and proteins grown within the farm. With this has spent almost 30 years providing great meals around the country, at Event Sports Centers, Hospitals, Universities, and Restaurants. Most recently Chef Pedro was the Executive Chef at Cottage Hospital for 12 years.

Now Chef Pedro and his wife Ruth operate their catering, meal prep and food service program from their 30 Acres Cafe, open to the public Monday – Friday located at 7414 Hollister Ave. inside the techpark.
