Terra Firma has over 15 years experience producing high quality organic fruit and vegetables for its Community Supported Agriculture program (CSA). At most times of year, we are harvesting and packing a wide variety of seasonably available items from our fields. We use survey data and feedback from our subscribers to determine “what” and “how much” people want to get in their boxes each week. Our produce was also subjected to rigorous testing by shoppers in Davis, Berkeley, San Francisco, and San Rafael during more than a decade of sales at farmers markets. We also grow produce for retail outlets like Rainbow Grocery in San Francisco and the Davis and Sacramento Natural Foods Co-ops, as well as restaurants such as Chez Panisse, Oliveto, Quince, and Zuni.
We take the responsibility of feeding our subscribers seriously. While we are continually evaluating new crops and new varieties on our farm, we will try to fill our CSA boxes with items that we are sure our subscribers want to eat. Tomatoes are a perennial favorite, and we have one of the longest tomato growing seasons of any farm in Northern California. Our strawberries are another popular item, despite an often short season. Others might surprise you: subscribers rave about our winter-grow cauliflower, tender and sweet, as well as our garlic with its extra large and juicy cloves.
