Organic Farms

 

Morningstar Ranch

Morningstar Ranch
ORGANIC AVOCADO FARM IN NORTHERN SAN DIEGO COUNTY

We came across this wonderful property tucked off the beaten path in Valley Center, CA. Acquiring it in 2004, we've since developed the 50 acre avocado hill, added large gardens, cultivated the grapefruit orchard, and began keeping animals (cows, goats, chickens). We built a large packing house where we can box and distribute our organic avocados, persimmons, and grapefruit. We've had a wonderful time hosting WWOOFers, workaway guests, travelers and hikers. We have three large ponds and have a heart toward alternative energy, composting toilets, and more in hopes of creating a sustainable lifestyle on the land.

More Details
  • Three large ponds for swimming & boating
  • Yurts and cabins and several houses for accommodation
  • 2+ acres of vegetable gardens
  • Farmstand and Yellow Deli restaurant
 

Stoneybrook Farm

Stoneybrook Farm Market
ORGANIC FARM IN NORTHERN VIRGINIA

We are a 45 acre certified organic farm in rural Loudoun County, Virginia that we've been managing for the past 15+ years. Our mission is to grow quality local organic crops using sustainable practices. We sell our vegetables and fruit through our Farm Market on Route 9. We are located in the historic town of Hillsboro, Virginia. We also sell wholesale to a number of organic produce markets in the greater Washington, DC area. We believe in preserving farm land for agriculture and protecting the historical heritage of Northern Virginia. Our soil fertility is maintained through the use of cover crops, compost, and crop rotations. We grow most vegetable crops including many heirloom varieties. We've added fields and a flourishing farm stand/natural foods market. There we serve farm fresh salads, sandwiches, and bake fresh breads and pies.

We are about 40 people, farming about 120 acres for the past 25+ years. We are growing vegetables of all sorts, some grain, and some herbs.

We long to see restoration come about in all the aspects of life.

100 ACRE FRUIT ORCHARD IN EASTERN KANSAS (NEAR LAWRENCE)

This amazing farm is 150 acres with nearly 2,000 fruit trees and berry bushes, orchard equipment, seven ponds, pecan grove, pastures, fields, woods, three houses, three greenhouses, chicken and goat barn, a beautiful U-pick operation as well as a spot to build our own farmstand deli right on the property.
