Eatwell Farm is a 65-acre organic farm in the Sacramento Valley. Nigel Walker has been farming the certified organic land since 1993 and was able to purchase it in 1998. They grow hundreds of different crops and run a major Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) operation in addition to a regular stall at the Ferry Building farmer’s market.
In the CSA model, subscribers support small farms by paying in advance for a weekly box of fresh produce that is delivered to the city throughout the year. Subscribers gain a direct connection to the farm that produces their food and a means to directly assist growers with their good work. Since farmers get paid in advance, they gain a more efficient way to plan their finances and planting, and also a bit of freedom to experiment with different crops.
Gravel & Gold is delighted to serve as a CSA box location for Eatwell Farm every Wednesday. To sign up for your own weekly CSA box, please contact the farm directly.
