About

First-generation farmer Kenny found his calling in agriculture working at local farms in Santa Cruz County. In 2009, at age 25, he leased six acres in the foothills of Corralitos to start his own organic farm. Currently, the farm is operating on 10 acres of family-owned land. The intensively farmed parcel is very dynamic, with dairy goats, laying chickens, honey bees, orchards, and beautiful produce all finding their place. The farmers have found their niche growing unusual vegetable and herb varieties, heirloom beans, and cut flowers and selling directly through farmers markets and to chefs. 

Certification

California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF).

Fun Fact
