Chetwyn Farm is the name of our small family farm located in the Hayward Hills. Its history goes back to the 1800's where it was an old cattle ranch. It has gone through many changes through the decades. When we bought the farm it was run down and in need of a family. On the property among the citrus trees, we discovered an avocado tree and our avocado adventure began. First we planted six trees to see how they would grow, and grow they did. Next we planted a small variety of trees to see which would bear fruit. They all did! Now we have added over 400 avocado trees of different varieties to our farm. The different varieties have staggered seasons, so we will have delicious organic avocados year round. We are enjoying this farming adventure and hope you also will enjoy the fruit of our labor.
William Meek was the largest landowner in Hayward.
In the early 20th century row crops took on a new importance. Peas, strawberries, rhubarb, potatoes, and sugar beets were all grown on large farms (like the Meek Estate), but also on smaller farms. After harvest, row crops were usually processed in the greater Hayward area. Crops might be sent to the local canneries like Hunt’s or California Conserving Company. Crops like asparagus might be sent south to Niles or Alvarado for trimming, packing, and shipping"
In 1940, before World War II, about 6,736 people lived in Hayward. A decade later that number more than doubled to 14,271 people.
Between 1940 and 1960, the Hayward area began to transition from a predominantly agricultural area to a suburban community. The subdivision of the vast Meek Estate property and large Castro Valley farms and orchards began in the 1920s through the 1940s. The World War II period attracted more residents and facilitated the development of agricultural lands for building homes and stores. This trend continued well into the 1960s.
