MEET LOCAL FARMERS
MACIEL FAMILY FARM
This is the farm that started it all for us! Adam, Laura & their daughters introduced us to their farm and we fell in love. We were in awe the first time we saw their farm. Beautiful! Their nutrient dense deep colored dandelion greens are our favorite!! This farm packs a punch with its greens, herbs & beets and veggies. We love visiting their farm to see what's growing, see the fam and to get some fresh air! Follow them for behind the scenes action @macielorganicfamilyfarm
GOOD TASTE FARM
Sara & Kris knock it out of the park with their sustainably grown citrus, herbs & unique varieties like Korean cucumber melons, thai bananas, and purple kale. So good! Maybe that is why they are called GOOD taste :) We have been using their citrus for some time now and love the passion behind the produce. They are the best!

SAGE MOUNTAIN FARM
We have been enjoying produce from Phil & Juany for years at the Hillcrest Farmers' Market. They grow amazing fruits and vegetables using organic processes and sparkling clean, natural well water from the San Jacinto Mountains in their backyard. They have some of the best tasting, most flavorful veggies around! They also sustainable raising our steers, chickens and pigs. Follow them behind the scenes @sagemountainfarm
SAN JUAQUIN, CA.
Paul Smit, has been a partner of ours for apples and we look forward to sharing more from his luscious farm. Like almonds, cherries, & stone fruit! With a rich farming history in the heart of California & over four decades of experience this farm is one of our faves for tree fruit! They are committed to quality so they can ensure that you receive the best fruit an orchard can produce. We are excited to source more from their farm to share with you all!

TERRA MADRE GARDENS
David grows with a ying/yang philosophy. We first discovered them @ Vista Farmers' Market & geeked out at their foraged looking variety. Their farm garden naturally grows some of the best herbs we have seen and tasted. With a very wild nature to them, they add lots of flavor and medicinal qualities. Their saying is "we engage in the spiritual and physical worlds to bridge and marry heaven and earth." Follow them behind the scenes @terramadregardens
GAYTAN FAMILY FARM
MIRA LOMA, CA.
Known for the quality of their berries, we noticed the flavor, color and smell, yes smell was amazing! This family farm is full of color and assortment. They freshly pick the day before we get it as fresh as possible to you! We have been neighbors to this family at most of our farmer's markets and can easily say you will absolutely tell a difference and love what you eat from them.

Endeavour has been growing amazingly fresh nutritiously dense varieties of Asian greens, lettuce, kale, herbs & flowers. All of their greens are hydroponically grown! We have been enjoying their greens for years at the Vista & Leucadia Farmers' Markets. We've been to the farm a few times and each time we are in awe of the beautifully green abundance! They grow our favorite mustard greens! Follow them for behind the scenes action @sundialfarmca
Another great find at the Vista Farmers' Market! Kevin & his wife sell the best local duck eggs we could find. We believe if you are going to eat eggs, eat the best you can find, know the farm, and eat duck eggs! They are more alkaline than chicken, and are more nutritious. Plus, I think we have all had plenty of duck eggs and a change is good. These are creamy, rich and as natural as they come! Follow them behind the scenes @finsterfarmduckeggs
