    Hello to you!

    We grow an abundance of seasonal, nutritionally rich vegetables that are certified organic. We implement environmentally conscience practices that respect the soil and honor the seasons. We are also growing flowers to bring beneficial insects, to enjoy and to sell. We are in a farmers market every Sunday, deliver to restaurants, Coop grocery and businesses in the area, we keep it all local! We also sell to the school 10 miles away. We love to share ideas, exchange experiences, cook and enjoy our time together.

    The peak season is May to October, this is when there are lots of crops coming in and lots to do. An average day of work begins at 6 or 7 in the morning and for you would end at lunch time. The hours do vary due to weather. The hope is to train you to work side by side and also to give you the independence to work on your own. If you're interested in learning the techniques used and what’s been learned over the years we are happy to share.

    As for the crops in summer there are tomatoes, a variety of peppers, onions, greens, herbs, flowers, squash, cucumbers, eggplant etc... Diversifying the crops and implementing companion planting. Fall and winter are full of broccoli, cauliflower, greens, carrots, radish, onions etc.

    Accommodation is a large trailer that we redid inside and is private and comfortable. You have a kitchen to yourself and a quiet space. It is not always possible to eat together, but we do cook together when possible.
    There are four pups that are both snugly and adorable and are very much apart of the farm family that cruise around the farm.

    Near to the farm is Sacramento ( which is the capital of California!) in about 25 minutes, east is Tahoe and it takes about 1.5 hours and west is San Francisco in about 1.5 hours.

    The farm is located 20 minutes from any town and there is no access with public transit. Please keep this in mind, you must love the quiet of nature! Also we have wifi in our house, but not in your accommodation, if you would like to have full-time access to the internet we suggest a simple plan from a phone provider, from everyone who has decided to take this route we've heard it is super affordable.

    ******Please write when you’d like to come and for how long you’d like to stay. The farm is currently are not accepting folks for long term stays. We prefer to host for one or two weeks and if everyone is stoked we can talk & organize for you to stay longer. *******

    We look forward to hearing from you and wish you the best of luck, Scriv & Rosie

    Guests stay in a 5wheel trailer that we gutted and redid the inside, it's pretty cute. You have your own kitchen, toilet and bed and it's in a quiet corner of the farm so you have your own space. If you’re in need of internet in your space it is recommend getting an internet card or temporary provider.

    Near to us there are the Sierra Nevada mountains, the Yuba and American rivers, San Francisco is 1.5 hours away... I like to go to the Yuba and stop by Nevada City, make sandwiches and take a dip.
    The location is isolated with limited access to town and if you’d like to travel a good way is to rent a car.
