15 to 30 acres of irrigated vegetable land, plus 15- 30 acres of dry farming/cover crops land available starting in January of 2023. Possibility of growing to include 45 acres of irrigated vegetable production and 150 acres of dry farming.
This land is located in a beautiful quiet valley and part of a large cattle ranch with Salinas silty clay loam soils and easy access to local markets. There are buried water lines with numerous risers supplied from water wells and a reservoir.
We are seeing tremendous results in the rangelands with the cattle utilizing holistic management and would like to continue developing new ways of farming regeneratively.
