Sierra Harvest is partnering with the Bear Yuba Land Trust and BriarPatch Food Coop to support farmers and ranchers in achieving long-term land security in our region by protecting farmland forever. Our goal is to identify & protect farmland from development and subdivision, and give farmers and ranchers the land-access they need to invest in and build thriving agricultural businesses.
Our first project is protecting the 37 acre property on Birchville Rd. that Mountain Bounty Farm has been leasing. You can help Bear Yuba Land Trust purchase this property, put it into agricultural conservation easement and lease it back to farmers in perpetuity to produce local food for our community for generations. This will allow Mountain Bounty to make long-term infrastructure investments, and will allow the next generation of farmers the land security to take over the business one day.
BE PART OF THE LEGACY AND MAKE MOUNTAIN BOUNTY A FOREVER FARM!
