Homage provides a menu reflecting our local bounty of farms within the Bay Area. Each week, our team travels to the market, building farm relationships, and gathering produce in perfect ripeness. We then prepare a concise, monthly changing menu, spotlighting and focusing on one single-origin farm.

Lucero Organic Farms
Ben and Karen Lucero, Ben's son, Curtis, and Curtis' wife, Priscilla, along with 4 seasonal employees
Started Working the Land:
Since 1960s. 50 acres in Lodi and Clarksburg, about 90 miles from Homage
on the farm:
Ben has been an organic grower since he was a teenager, when he tended a backyard garden with his brother. He started his first organic farm in the 1960s.
In 2006, Ben's son, Curtis, retired from the Army as a Military Police Non-Commissioned Officer with over 20 years of Active Duty, and returned to work on the family farm. His wife, Priscilla, has run a licensed daycare and pre-school on the farm since 2009.
Respectful of the ecosystem in which they farm, the Luceros strive to sustain their farmland for future generations. To maintain soil fertility, they rotate crops, plant cover crops, and apply compost.
All of our whole wheat is ground on-site, producing the freshest of flours.
Additional meats, seafoods and other produce not from our featured farm are sourced from beautifully cared for, local sources.
