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 "saying it" isn't enough.

We know we need to pay attention to our environment 2020 is a huge 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 free food..

Our Family mission is to preserve our access to Californias special Indegenious coastal traditions. The natural neurological balance that connectedness provides is needed to form strong communities. 
We have to be out in care of nature. We enjoy farming activities as Indegenous people we have always farmed. We grew up here and the farms are now all pretty much gone in Santa Barbara .

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 updated history of the coastal chumash cultures. We have a opportunity to be supportive while these people revitalize their beautiful tribe and rancho land ownership.   

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! 

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.
