Farm Tours

Join us for the 2023 Farm Tours season! This local favorite allows community members to meet our local farmers and see first-hand how they grow the products they offer in our beautiful agricultural landscape here in the Sierra Foothills. Learn how you can purchase local products creating a stronger food system. Together we can make changes one plate at a time.

Sept 21, 5:30-7pm – Sunrock Farm – Nevada City, CA
Sunrock Farm is a certified organic, 10 acre property, located just five minutes from Nevada City. We are situated in a unique south facing, micro-climate zone. This enables us to grow an assortment of sub-tropical fruits including Mandarin oranges, and numerous other varieties of citrus. We also grow heirloom beans, corn, and melons, plus an array of culinary herbs. The farm has been 100% no-till for 12 years, and 100% fossil fuel free for the past 2 years. Bring your own picnic! 

October 5, 4-5:30pm – Bierwagen & Super Tuber Farm – Grass Valley, CA
Bierwagen’s Donner Trail Fruit is a family farming tradition since 1902! Every October they open the gates for our community to experience a day at the farm. Super Tuber Farm aims to produce the tastiest, high quality produce in a manner that enriches the soil in which it is grown, the hands who grow it, and the bellies of those who eat it. Both Super Tuber and Bierwagen produce will be available on the tour!

October 12, 4-5:30pm – Mushbarn – Grass Valley, CA
MushBarn fruited from a community awestruck by the power and generosity of fungi. We aim to inspire healthy relationships between ourselves and nature’s networks to learn how to best support a resilient and fertile biosphere. We do this by growing mushrooms with regenerative practices, learning and sharing mycological theory and building community.
