Coastal Organics Slideshow

Flowers, heritage pigs, strawberries and haricots verts, broom corn, subsoiling — our recent visit to Thomas Farm and Dirty Girl Produce offered no shortage of engaging things to see. We also heard from both farmers about their approach to farming sustainably (hint: both rely heavily on biodiversity). Learn about how food is grown on these Santa Cruz County organic farms in our latest slideshow.
