Invest in Your Community Farm

Support Our Fundraising Drive

I do not allow myself to be overcome by hopelessness, no matter how tough the situation. I believe that if you just do your little bit without thinking of the bigness of what you stand against, if you turn to the enlargement of your own capacities, just that itself creates new potential. ~Vandana Shiva

Soil Born Farms emerged from the hearts of changemakers in 2000, a vision grounded in hard work, a commitment to the greater good, perseverance, teamwork and love. With imagination, we move towards new possibilities. We think of ourselves and our donors as co-creators helping to build a local food system where everyone has what they need. We remember sacred traditions and integrate regenerative agriculture practices that honor right relationship with the land and each other. Creating the Center for Food, Health & the Environment is the work of today infused with the vision of a healthier and more equitable tomorrow. We need your financial support to continue this invaluable work.

Veggie Rx Farm Box

Good Medicine for the Times

Our organic farmers are committed to environmental stewardship of the American River Ranch by practicing regenerative agriculture principles. Working with nature, cultivating healthy soil, reducing weed pressure, choosing varieties that grow well in this climate results in healthy food that is nutrient rich and delicious. Our produce is incredible this year. We are excited to offer Veggie Rx farm packs for you and your loved ones. Order in advance at our online marketplace each week from Tuesdays at 5pm to Thursdays at 9am. We’ll harvest and pack your order to be ready at your scheduled pickup time on Saturdays at our Drive-thru Farmstand between 8am and 12pm.

There are two convenient pack sizes to meet your veggie needs. The Individual pack (4 items) is $15 and the Family pack (8 items) is $25. Each pack will be filled with good nutrition based on what we have in the field ready for harvest. This summer we will add a fruit pack. You will also be able to purchase individual items from a selection of organic produce grown at Soil Born Farms and other local farms each week. Weekly seasonal produce will be updated on Tuesday when the online marketplace opens. When you purchase produce from Soil Born Farms you are helping us continue our mission to train beginning farmers and inspire everyone to choose, cook and grow healthy food.
