Meet Your Farmers

Organic, Sustainable, Local

There’s as much variety in farmers as there is in the food they grow and the farms they tend. From cattle ranchers to orchardists, aquaponicists to dirt farmers, they are crusty old vets and sparkling newbies… The key is that they practise the methods of organic, sustainable agriculture right here in the Bay Area.

Trust, Community, Friends

Farmers who value the environment, the sanctity of life, who farm organically are the farmers we know best and trust most. These are the farmers who are practising and passing on the lessons of sustainable agriculture. We know, since they are the farmers who taught us how to farm.

Know Your Farmer

From beekeepers to kombucha brewers, these are the farmers and producers who make the food for Community Supported Agriculture San Francisco.

Get to know these Bay Area originals as well as we have and you’ll begin to have a much deeper respect and knowledge of where your food comes from and the skill, determination and effort it takes to make it.
