John  Vars, Mike Irving, and Teresa Kurtak founded Fifth Crow Farm on a shoestring budget in Pescadero in 2008.

More on the Farm:

"Being a new farmer, you're more willing to try new things. When you've got many decades of experience coming down from your father or your grandfather, you're not going to necessarily buck the system and try to go organic if you've been told that doesn't work."
He speculates, "I think we wouldn't have been able to find that path if we had the experience to tell us not to do it."

"We want our farm to be more than a business: we strive to make it an engine for positive change in the food system. We want to build an agriculture that is economically viable, socially just, and ecologically sound."
