About Us

Terra Firma Farm is a 200 acre CCOF certified organic farm that grows vegetables and fruit year-round. Terra Firma’s Community Supported Agriculture project serves the San Francisco Bay area, Davis, Sacramento, Vacaville, and our hometown of Winters.

Terra Firma, rare among California farms today, is as much about people as it is about produce. Our farm supports dozens of employees, some of whom have been with us since the beginning. People become part of the farm and their personalities come to define their jobs. They have been essential in making our farm what it is today.

Our customers also play an crucial role in helping our business succeed, and in inspiring us. Many of our subscribers have been with us since the beginning of the CSA, and they visit us each year at our Fall Farm Day. Their kids have grown up with the memories of running through our fields and playing in our orchards, and they’ve grown up healthy while eating our vegetables.

We hope you choose to join us too!
