I was thrilled to see that you are now offering good quality worm castings. I have been told this is one of the best sources of food for my soil and plants. So excited to add this into my garden. Thank you!

The magic is still happening at SBF. The Online Marketplace shows a wide selection of produce and organic products. We easily order, then show up at our designated time and are greeted by the farm’s happy and welcoming staff. With their good energy, they load up my car with wonderful goodies. Nutritional information and a special recipe is included in each order. We are always excited to prepare and eat the freshest fruits and veggies from Soil Born Farms. And, all it takes is a quick online order. We love Soil Born!

We Miss You!

We are Moving Forward with Modifications

As an organic farm committed to practicing regenerative principles in the service of wellness and providing healthy food to our customers and community, we are determined now more than ever to do everything possible to move forward with that purpose. Behind the scenes, we are digging deep and being creative. We are revising plans, seeking emergency funding, reaching out to partners, funders and friends to help our nonprofit farm and education center survive this crisis and carry on with our mission. We are evaluating the best way for Soil Born Farms to serve our community, provide jobs for our dedicated staff and support other local farms, bakeries and small businesses. During this stage of modified reopening in Sacramento County, while the American River Ranch remains closed to the public, we are launching our online Marketplace and scheduling appointments for pickup at our Drive-thru Farmstand on Saturdays. We are planning for the months ahead and we’ll keep you updated on expanded opportunities to learn, volunteer and explore at the American River Ranch.

Regenerative agriculture provides answers to the soil crisis, the hunger crisis, the health crisis and the climate crisis and the crisis of democracy

Stay Home

A Poem by Wendell Berry

I will wait here in the fields
to see how well the rain
brings on the grass.
In the labor of the fields
longer than a man’s life
I am at home. Don’t come with me.
You stay home too.

I will be standing in the woods
where the old trees
move only with the wind
then with the gravity.
In the stillness of the trees
I am at home. Don’t come with me.
You stay home too.
