The Farm

About our farm


The Farm at North River Farms was created to shape our story and the way we live. We are immersed in the abundant landscape, celebrating the craft and culture of this unique place and it’s roots in farming. We bring local food and culture home, for our residents, our neighbors, and our region. We are growing community and firmly believe in the value of the farm as a key piece of our growth.

What you'll find here


Along with inherent beauty of the open space within the community, our farm is designed to be the gateway to the region.

North River Farms
Market Gardens

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.

Native Windrows

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.

A Farmstand

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.

North River Farms
The Vineyard

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.

U-Pick produce

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.
