Living behind the "Redwood Curtain" up in California's famous Humboldt County makes it even more difficult to get fresh organic produce. Without our wonderful Farmers Markets that are under the umbrella of the North Coast Growers Association, it would be much more costly, as we are so far from any large metropolitan area. We have at least 6 locations of markets, all within driving distance. And many of them operate more than once a week. So we always have access to fresh local produce, plants, dairy products, etc. And good people sharing their knowledge to help us grow our own or just to learn more about the art of farming.
