About

Robin and Nancy Gammons were both native Californians and enthusiastic home gardeners when they met in 1970. They were married in 1975, and, with the help of Robin’s father, were able to purchase land in Aromas to start a farm. The farm is named after their four daughters: Lucy, Jill, Dusty, and Prema. Jill, is following in her parents’ footsteps and managing the farm. From the beginning, the Gammonses’ approach to farming has been organic and ecological. They use a small tractor, a rototiller, and hand tools for planting. Four Sisters Farms’ offerings include perennial crops such as guavas, kiwis, and protea flowers. To Jill, family farms are essential for food access.

Certification

California Certified Organic Farmer (CCOF) since 1988

Fun Fact

When the Gammonses first began farming, their land had 3 inches of topsoil. Now, after many years of adding compost and organic matter, their land has almost 3 feet of rich topsoil.
