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.

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.
Note: Week of June 29, there will only be a Friday pick up option due to the 4th of July holiday.

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.
