Bob’s family moved to Mendocino County in 1970. He got his first rototiller when he was 17 and has been growing food ever since. He’s been farming for 42 years with 30 years of those at his current location in Redwood Valley.
The one-acre farm’s soil is sustained with green manure practices. No pesticides, herbicides, or other chemicals have ever been used. The farm specializes in Asian eggplant, beans, kale, winter spinach, and sweet peppers.
