We farm a number of sites along the north and south banks of Putah Creek totaling about 200 acres. Micro climates and different soil types allow us to produce almost 100 different crops each year, including spring, summer and winter vegetables, as well as stone fruit, citrus and nuts (pistachios and walnuts). We have two distinct seasons here: dry and hot from May-October, and cool and wet from November-April. There are very few crops we can’t grow in Winters for at least part of the year, and the majority of the items in our boxes every week come from our own fields and orchards.
