Hello to you!
I grow an abundance of seasonal, nutritionally rich vegetables that are certified organic. I 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 and we are sensitive to those who don't like to get up early, if this is the case we can be flexible on afternoon work, but it is hotter at this time! 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 I’m happy to share.
As for the crops in summer there are heirloom 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.
It is not always possible to eat together, but often we do.
There are two pups that are both snugly and adorable and are very much apart of the farm family.
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.
******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. It’s prefer to host for one or two weeks and if everyone is stoked we can talk & organize for you to stay longer. *******
I look forward to hearing from you and wish you the best of luck, Scriv

We love to share language and are happy to help you with your English skills.
Guests stay in a tent with a comfy bed that looks out to one of the vegetable fields and in winter when the birds are migrating it’s a great viewing spot. Internet is limited, if you’re in need of internet often 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.
