Featured Farm:
Plum Possum Farm – Lincoln

Valerie Seymour is what they call a NEW Agrarian. A NEW agrarian can be a couple where one spouse works the farm full-time and the other works off-farm at another job. It allows for balance and sustainability of new farms. Valerie was a engineer in her first career and Jeff, her husband, still is. Valerie applies much of what she knows about engineering to farming proving that engineering is the best 1st career for any farmer because you have to know how to fix stuff and problem solve. Now she gets to do what she loves, grow amazing food for her family and community. Get to meet Valerie and Jeff at our first Supper Club farm-to-table dinner on August 27th. Learn more here!

Need an Event Space?
Rent out the Farm Shop

We just hosted our first event last week at the Farm Shop…Truckee Rotary hosted their weekly, lunch meeting and it was awesome! There was a lovely buffet set-up thanks to North Tahoe Catering which was all sourced from our local farms. It is a great space for a 50-person lunch, a 75-person dinner or even a small group of 8-10 for a workshop. Rates are based on the size and duration of the event but prices are reasonable so contact us for more details.

Fight Climate Change with Regenerative Ag
By: Rodale Institute

 

If we want to combat our changing climate, we need to rethink the way we produce food, says new report by the United Nations. The report released by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which examines how land use changes have contributed to the warming of Earth’s atmosphere, has concluded that agriculture and forestry have contributed nearly a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions. The report underscores the urgency of adopting regenerative and holistic farming techniques that are able to sequester carbon, increase soil health, and reduce fossil fuel use. Regenerative organic farming prioritizes working with natural systems to produce food, instead of relying on synthetic inputs, which can help mitigate climate change.

Rodale Institute’s Farming Systems Trial has found that organic systems use 45% less energy, release 40% fewer carbon emissions, and have the potential to produce yields up to 40% higher in times of drought over conventional systems. Utilizing methods like organic no-till allows the soil to remain undisturbed, capitalizing on its potential to sequester carbon in the ground and return nutrients to our food. Read More…

Who we are what we do:

Tahoe Food Hub (TFH) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to develop a local food system that increases access to local food for communities surrounding Lake Tahoe and benefits diversified family farms within 150-miles. Our goal is to support farms using regenerative farming practices by providing them a fair marketplace to sell their products. Through this agricultural network, we can connect our community with where their food comes from and better understand the social, environmental and economic benefits of a local food system.
