Mike, Teresa & John, Fifth Crow Farm
Organic Fruit & Vegetables, Heritage Beans, & Pasture-raised Eggs
Pescadero, California
Established 2008
 

A young and growing, highly diversified, certified organic farm in Pescadero, California, halfway between San Francisco and Santa Cruz.

Founded in 2008 with little more than a shoestring budget, a supportive local community, and ambitious dreams, Fifth Crow Farm strives to bring eaters the highest quality, best tasting, and most nutritious food possible. They operate on 80 acres: 27 acres of row crops, a 24-variety apple orchard, a young pear orchard, and a pastured egg operation consisting of 2 flocks of about 350 beautiful ladies—all heritage breeds.
