About Us

We are a small farmers who follow organic practices in our fruit, honey, and vegetable production. However, we are not certified. We are officially 'in transition', but don't plan to certify anytime soon. We simply don't sell enough to justify the cost and record keeping. Our livestock is all free range, but is supplemented with grain that is not certified organic. To date, only herbal supplements have been used to control parasites.

About Us

We are a small farmers who follow organic practices in our fruit, honey, and vegetable production. However, we are not certified. We are officially 'in transition', but don't plan to certify anytime soon. We simply don't sell enough to justify the cost and record keeping.

Our livestock is all free range, but is supplemented with grain that is not certified organic. To date, only herbal supplements have been used to control parasites. No other medications have been needed, but I would not rule it out in the case of serious injury or illness in the goats or cattle.

The actual acreage we farm is small, so supplies are limited. Most of the 130 acre property is managed as native plant, pollinator and wildlife habitat. The land is registered with the LA Wildlife & Fisheries Natural Heritage program and the federal NRCS Conservation Stewardship program.
