We cultivate ten acres focusing on production of head lettuce, salad greens, peppers, cucurbits, tomatoes, cut flowers, and various other market crops for wholesale and farmer’s markets. We aim to grow the highest quality produce by nurturing our soils and the whole farm ecosystem through regenerative farm practices.

 

Our seasonal field crew is integral to the success of the farm. Seasonal field crew members will be joining an existing crew that is excited to work and grow together on the farm.

We strive to foster our crew members’ passions and strengths on the farm and offer transparency on a profitable small farm business model. All positions include unlimited fresh produce for regular home use. We do not offer on-farm housing, and cannot accommodate dogs on the farm.
