Small, diverse, and well-managed, Market Gardens bring visual, biological, and cultural diversity back to our landscape. Agriculture should be beautiful, and it starts with putting a diversity of people and plants back at the heart of the farm. We grow food for our residents and the local community. We care for our natural resources, rebuild our soils, save precious water, and grow good clean food.
We take care in creating a safe haven for wildlife while rebuilding the integrity of our ecosystems. Windrows and hedgerows protect and divide our fields while providing habitat for wildlife, attracting pollinators, filtering stormwater, and providing opportunities for exploration and discovery for all ages.
Local economy is the backbone of a strong community. At North River Farms, the Farmstand is a hub for local artisans including farmers, artists, and craftspeople of all kinds, brought together to share in the bounty of the farm.
San Diego County is seeing the birth of a new, world-class, viticulture region. With our abundant sunshine, fertile soils, and dry weather, superb Syrahs and Sangioveses will now be available from our own front yard.
Whether your the parent of a small child or a passionate foodie, few experiences prove more memorable than picking and eating fruit fresh from the field. Experience that joy year-round at North River Farms.
Small Farm Incubator
We encourage the next generation of farmers, not only through leasing land, but also through the creation of a local demand for their produce. Young farmers will have a unique opportunity to sell their bounty within sight of their fields.
