Meet us at the Mariposa Farmers' Market! We will begin selling sometime in August (when the tomatoes are ripe) and will sell through October. 

The 2013 Farmers' Market season has started. Every Wednesday evening, from 4:30pm to 6:30pm. 

The market is held at the Sixth Street parking lot on Stroming Road adjacent to the Creek Parkway.

crops and products

Chickens: The farm (and farmer) are completely devoted to chickens. They get feed from Black Rock Milling (low soy),  lettuce from T & D Willey Farms (as their morning treat), and have access to plenty of pasture which is irrigated in the summer. During the winter they have access to two large greenhouses (along with their chicken houses) so they have a place to go during rain and snow.
Eggs: Our eggs are available through Mountain Meadow Farms CSA, and High Country Health in Mariposa. They are also available in egg flats to restaurants.

Turkeys: Mid-September through mid-October are the best times to order your turkey(s) for Thanksgiving. They sell out quickly. Our turkeys are free-range Broad Breasted Bronze. They enjoy tomatoes, apples, yogurt, pasture, and lettuce as treats. $6.49/lb

Heirloom Tomatoes: The tomatoes are grown in the ground in the two of our three large greenhouses during summer and fall. A third greenhouse has been added to allow proper crop rotation insuring a bountiful harvest. They are seasonally available through Mountain Meadow Farms CSA, the Mariposa Farmers' Market, and High Country Health. They are also served at local fine restaurants including the Mountain Room and the Ahwahnee in Yosemite Valley, and Sugar Pine Restaurant in Mariposa. 

The starts are grown by John Teixeira of Lone Willow Organics. Last year (2012) we grew 50 different varieties. A sample list: Black Krim, Paul Robeson, Kellogg's Breakfast, Fantastic, Flamme, Hawaiian Pineapple, Marizol Gold, Box Car Willy, Cherokee Chocolate, Moon Glow, Big Russian Roma, Beef Steak, Pale Face, Marizol Bratka, Vintage Wine, Black Cherry, Pink Brandywine, Chocolate Stripes, Cherokee Purple, Green Zebra, Georgia Streak, Big Beef, German Red Strawberry, Gold Medal Yellow, Florida Pink, Big Rainbow, Costoluto Genovese, Armenian, Hess.

We also sell some extras through our CSA, such as coffee and olive oil.

Why join? You will receive fresh produce grown without the use of toxic herbicides, pesticides, or chemical fertilizers. You will know where, how, and by whom your food is grown. Your money supports small California family farms from our local region. You will be eating in season, and you may be introduced to new produce.

What will I get? Each box of produce and bag of fruit will vary from week to week depending on regional and local seasonal availability. The size of the box is three gallons and approximately supplies two adults with veggies for most of the week. If you cook (and like vegetables or are committed to improving your diet), you will have no problem using your box. The boxes come with a flyer with recipe ideas and other food information. Boxes are $22.50 weekly
or $24.50 every other month. Fruit and eggs are optional at $10/bag and $6.50/dozen respectively.

How do I start? Call, or email us the week
before you would like to start. There is a $15 non-refundable, one-time start fee. We will set up an on-going subscription for you, which can be changed via your online account, or by contacting us. Deliveries are on Tuesday and you leave out your empty box so it can be exchanged for a full one. You may receive deliveries as often as you like and may stop and start for any reason (vacation, summer garden, work schedule, etc.). If you need to cancel a delivery, you can do so online, or by calling, or emailing a week ahead to receive a credit towards future deliveries.
