Good Humus Produce

IN THE BEGINNING:  Good Humus Produce is a small family farm, owned and run by Jeff and Annie Main. We farm 20 acres of certified organic land in a little valley called the Hungry Hollow in Northern California. We started farming in 1976 after we both graduated from UC Davis and decided we wanted to live on the land and be self sufficient. The love of growing food, living on the less traveled path and doing something meaningful came from generations of strong-minded individuals. Cooperation, communities, social change, food movement and land stewardship have been our guiding beliefs in one form or another since the 1970's.

FARM TO SCHOOL:  During the last 10 years, we have been increasingly involved with local school  district lunch programs and farm to school visits, and several summer programs emphasizing bioregional watershed and farm awareness with inner city teens.

SELLING PRODUCE:  We have been selling at the Davis Farmers Market, to wholesalers in the Bay Area, and to the Davis and Sacramento Food Coops since 1976. In 1993 we started our Community Supported Agriculture program which has helped to continue our commitment to direct and local marketing.

PRESERVING GOOD HUMUS:  We have been working to build from the ground up a  family farm that provides food for people in our community. We have realized that if often takes lifetimes to developed a farm infrastructure, the buildings and processes that characterize a mature, viable farming unit. Through luck, help, and hard work we have been able to do most of the work of creating such a farm, but much is still yet to be accomplished. We are now in the process of permanently preserving Good Humus Farm through an Agricultural Easement . This will facilitate a future of not only ongoing stewardship and healthy local food production, but also a commitment to community and place.
