fresh local organic and delicious

What's not to love about a little organic farm. This is the quintessential small family farm, where it's real people growing the food you put on your table. Not only do you know where your food comes from, you know whose hands have tilled the soil, planted the seeds, tended the crops and harvested lovely produce at the peak of freshness. It's fresh seasonal organic food, with a commitment to doing it right. Simply delicious.
As a harvest member I received newsletters with tidbits about what was going on at the farm, and the issue that covered their farming practices was eye opening. It all seems to start with the soil, using their own compost and cover cropping yearly to maintain soil fertility, never using outside fertilizers or any type of chemicals. Not only that, they plant a habitat for the bees and to keep the good bugs hanging around. It is the food that tells the rest of the story. All I can say is yum!
This place is great!

I visited some friends in the Paso Robles area, and had the pleasure to have some eggs purchased from A Little Organic Farm for breakfast while I was there.
I will admit that I used to think an egg was an egg was an egg, but once I saw the eggs from A Little Organic Farm my eyes were opened to how different quality eggs can be: the shells were beautiful, the yolks bright yellow, the whites clear, and they tasted great!
Check them out and see how amazing they are for yourself.

I happened to come across "A Little Organic Farm" through word-of-mouth. Finding it involved a drive through some absolutely beautiful country above Paso Robles just off highway 46. Cindy and Gary (the owners) were charming and delightful people and took us for a walk around the farm, which is still a Work-In-Progress that is exciting to hear about. We bought some of the most beautiful eggs I've ever seen (a wonder in technicolor!) that turned out to taste better than they looked, which was fabulous. I fell in love with Cindy's granola mix and couldn't make it last more than a day. Their produce was fresh, lovely to look at and delicious. Lots of varieties and choices and they promise more to come in the seasons ahead. Somewhere in the near future they will be opening a 2-unit bed and breakfast right in the middle of all that wonderful country (oh and by the way, the view from there is to die for) and I've asked them to put our names on the list pronto. Gary told me they'll be adding to their livestock and plan to start a line of soaps sometime this year. I can't think of a more relaxing, bucolic, eye-pleasing place to spend 2 or 3 days while investigating the many wineries in the area. Trust me -- you gotta check this place out! I'd drive here from the Bay Area any chance I can find. If you need a get-away to distance yourself from urban madness -- this is the place to come.

This beautifully situated farm has all you would expect from an organic farm and more. Perfectly situated with an amazing view I can hardly wait for the B & B to open so I can stay!
With chickens for eggs, goats for milk and cheese along with fruit trees galore it doesn't get any better than this!
I've personally have had the cheese and eggs and wish I lived closer to get them weekly!
This farm is a must see!
