About

A San Diego native, Ryan became interested in farming in college while taking agriculture courses at UC Santa Cruz. After completing a Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems internship and working on several farms, he decided to start an organic farm with Ned Conwell, a childhood friend. In 2005, Ryan and Ned lucked out when Peninsula Open Land Trust  awarded them a lease on four acres in Pescadero. Farming in two different microclimates allows Blue House Farm to grow over 50 types of certified organic farm products. Cool-weather crops like lettuce, artichokes, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and strawberries thrive in the foggy weather on their San Gregorio property. The Pescadero ranch, located five miles inland, has a sunny climate for heat-loving crops like tomatoes, pepper, sweet potatoes, and melons.

Fun Fact

A blue building on the farm’s property inspired the name Blue House Farm.
