Primarily a market farm selling to farmers’ markets and restaurants in San Francisco and San Mateo County, they also have a nearly 200 member CSA. They operate on 80 acres: 30 acres of row crops, a 24-variety apple orchard, and a pastured egg operation consisting of 2 flocks of about 350 beautiful ladies - all heritage breeds.
“We want our farm to be more than a business: we strive to make it an engine for positive change in the food system".”
All of our whole wheat is ground on-site, producing the freshest of flours.
