The one place that’s closer to the source of our scrumptious North Coast fruits and vegetables than our fabulous farmers markets is the farms themselves. And fortunately for us, an increasing number of local farms have produce (and sometimes farm-raised meat) for sale to the public right on their farms. Some also offer pick-your-own, or “u-pick,” opportunities, and a few even let you call ahead to arrange a pick-up of produce. So, check out the listings below and start plotting your summer farm tour!

Listing information is from Locally Delicious’ free 2017-2018 Local Food Guide, available throughout the tri-county region. Call 707-633-5467 or email if you can’t find a copy.
