Farm Shorts: Canvas Ranch

Sonoma—Petaluma

Canvas Ranch is a small family farm in the idyllic Two Rock Valley north of San Francisco, something like you might find in the countryside of France or Italy.

Together with our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) members, our farmworkers and friends, we're a community, a village of sorts. We work together to feed each other, support each other, fulfill each other's needs. Creating something from the earth demands that you get to know the land in a most intimate way. From the soil come nutrients that feed the crops, the livestock, and the soul. For this reason Canvas Ranch is sustainably farmed to ensure it supports this nurturing cycle season after season. What we take from the earth comes back to us in juicy, hearty, flavorful fruits and vegetables. We share our 28-acre home with Olde English Babydoll Southdown sheep, cashmere goats, Ameraucana chickens, Maremma livestock guardian dogs, some cats, and a few barn owls. It is teeming with life, full of energy and renewal.
