ORGANICALLY GROWN FOR GENERATIONS
Funnily enough, our journey growing organic, heirloom varietals started with a 1954 article that praised the benefits of earthworms, and where we learned about “Serenity Acres,” or “An Earthmaster Home,” which is a self-sustainable farming method.
This inspired us to dedicate ourselves to organic farming, with a fresh perspective on land stewardship, especially considering that we call the Sacramento Delta Watershed home. Here, the water table is just 18 feet below the surface, which means protecting our water source from contaminants is one of top priorities. It influences our farming methods, runoff control, and soil enrichment.
We’re passionate about the incredible flavors and unique texture that heirlooms bring from our farm onto your tables. These varieties connect us all with a rich agricultural heritage that’s been passed down through generations.
Every heirloom tomato or heritage potato from our farm is like biting into a piece of history, and our commitment to growing heirlooms means we’re reducing our reliance on chemicals, promoting biodiversity, and creating a sustainable environment for plants and people alike. We can’t wait to welcome you along on our journey.
