US Farms, Inc. Announces Asparagus Sales

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 16, 2007 -- US Farms, Inc. (OTCBB: USFI) is pleased to announce the company has booked sales of Asparagus exceeding $250,000.00 in sales in just its first two weeks of its Asparagus harvest. The company plans to continue to harvest its Asparagus throughout the coming months up to the end of the first quarter. These sales figures are in line with the company's sales projections that were released last week.

Seventy to Eighty percent of the United States domestic supply of fresh Asparagus is grown in California. Statewide, the harvest season is from January 15 to June 30. Early season Asparagus is harvested in Imperial Valley, Ca where US Farms, Inc. currently grows 210 acres of Asparagus. The harvest moves north as the weather warms in the spring. Asparagus fields are harvested by hand every 1 to 3 days depending on how quickly marketable sized spears are emerging, a function of soil and air temperature.

Darin Pines, Director of US Farms, Inc., stated, "US Farms is one of the only domestic growers currently harvesting Asparagus, making it a great market for us. We are currently exceeding our projections in sales."

US Farms, Inc. President Yan K. Skwara stated, "We are very pleased thus far with our Asparagus sales and the overall demand for our crops and plants right out the gate this year. We will continue to add to our sales of crops and plants to build what we believe can be a very strong quarter for the company and its shareholders."
