Soil Born Farms, located on the American River in Rancho Cordova (40 acres) and in Sacramento on Hurley Way (1.5 acres), organically grows a wide variety of fruits and vegetables linked to the seasons and temperament of the Sacramento region. All produce is harvested within a day of distribution to local restaurants, famers markets and at their own farm stand at the American River ranch location from May – November. This nonprofit farm is actively involved in fostering organic farming through their farm apprentice program and youth education, special events at the farm, participation at community events and working in partnership with other farm-related groups; all these efforts demonstrate their commitment to quality organic produce and the connection between food, health and the environment. All water used in irrigation comes from the American River and no synthetic pesticides or fertilizers are used. All produce is packaged in reusable boxes and they actively recycle and compost onsite.
