read more about our Vision (below)
The purpose of our farm is to share what we love with the world.
Farms carry our most precious resources. We believe farms are a place for cultivating so much more than food..
We must reduce our farm sizes so we have less factory food.!!
More small community farms create a local connection to our shared resources, We believe clean land = clean water and "saying it" isn't enough.
We know we need to pay attention to our environment 2020 is a example of how we can use our collective voice for change.
Ditching factory farms is a big deal. It is important to preserve access to little community farms for mental health, community health and food freedom..
Our Family mission is to preserve our access to Californias Indegenious coastal traditions. The natural neurological balance that connectedness provides is needed to form strong communities.We have to be in care of nature as a community. We enjoy farming activities as Indegenous people we have always farmed. We grew up here and the farms are now all, privatized or gone in Santa Barbara and Goleta..
We used to ride horses from our home to the parks and trails. We had a very horse friendly community until more recently. We hope newcommers will try to learn the TRUE and Complex updated history of the indigenous coastal cultures. We have a opportunity to be supportive while these people revitalize their beautiful tribe and their rights to the vast rancho land stewardship.
We can unify over farms and cultivating food on small local plots of land and create communities of collective food sharing. Nothing is free for a small farmer but hard work and shared expense can create change.... We are cultivating a clear vision that includes you, the Natural world and animals!
Life is better outside with friends. Come help us build a new way of farming. Bring the family and lets keep our community focus on making a better world outside. Until we See you on the farm.
