We began growing produce when we discovered our children had food allergies. Several processed food ingredients were the culprit, and we started reading and researching a healthier diet for our family. Since we both had a farming and agriculture background, we chose to grow alot of our food, so we could closely control what we were eating. What a positive difference it has made, and we decided to share what we learned with our community.
Red Hot Poker Farms is growing fruit, vegetables, heritage breed turkeys, cage-free fresh eggs and pasture raised beef - along with our four daughters. We participate in the City of Roswell Farmer's Market and we are weeks away from launching our first CSA.
Welcome to Rancho de los Proyectos, Ranch of Projects, where we specialize in seasonal produce including tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, onions, garlic, herbs and citrus. We are a very small family farm with a micro-CSA. We started gardening here about 10 years ago just to provide vegetables for our family because we think home-grown food tastes better, is more nutritious, and is better for the environment.
Rancho Gordo specializes in New World vegetables, perfect for native and Latin cuisines, and for everyday cooking. Dried heirloom beans, dried corn, grains and chiles are all offered at the bay area's best farmers markets, through Local Harvest and now at our warehouse just north of downtown Napa.
