Soil Born Farms believes that high quality local produce should be affordable to all members of our community. Vegetables from our fields get to consumers through local markets and restaurants, local food banks, our Farmstand and a weekly or biweekly produce box program that families subscribe to Community Supported Agriculture or CSA.
Enjoy our fresh from the field, nutrient-rich organically grown produce and check out local hand-crafted farm products available from other local growers. Pastries, fair-trade Pachamama coffee and other beverages are for sale every Saturday. Visitors sit and chat with new and old friends, meet the farmers who grew their food and wander the fields of the American River Ranch enjoying the rural setting.
The Farmstand is also an important direct marketing training component of our Apprenticeship and Jr. Interns programs. Check our calendar to see the educational community activities offered each Saturday.
Everyone is encouraged to bike or walk to the ranch and bring a shopping bag. Every dollar spent at the Farmstand supports the work of Soil Born Farms Urban Agriculture & Education Project.

Soil Born Farms’ community supported agriculture (CSA) program is a partnership between our non profit urban farms and a community of supporters. CSA members purchase a “farm share” which helps us cover the costs of growing. In return, Soil Born Farms provides CSA members with an abundance of fresh from the field, nutrient-rich, organically grown produce each week during the season.
