Soil Born Farms Certified Organic Produce

When you purchase vegetables and fruit grown at Soil Born Farms it's a win win! You get fresh-from-the-field organic produce and support a training program for beginning farmers. Our young farmers are proud to grow for our CSA members, the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op, local chefs and food banks. As a CSA member, the impact of your dollars goes beyond choosing healthy food for your family. This investment in Soil Born Farms allows you to reconnect with the land, know your farmers and participate directly in a local food system. In addition, you provide valuable support for innovative education programs, food access initiatives and the development of a local community farm and education center.
