  2. Ananda Valley Farm is a new small organic farm (started in 2013) with CA-certified organic produce. Our CSA program runs from May-November. Our specialties:
    • Freshly harvested organic produce, just 1-2 days before you receive it (some CSAs can harvest a fair amount longer before you receive)
    • Harvested by hand at optimal ripeness, for peak nutritional value
    • Restorative, no-till agriculture
    • Class 1 soil – the best soil in the world for growing quality food
    • Most of our management team and many of our interns are meditators
    We’ve been growing fast, from 75 subscribers in 2015 to 150 planned in 2016. We have 5 pick-up points for CSA boxes in Half Moon Bay, Palo Alto, and Mountain View, and more may be coming in 2016. You can learn more or sign up at:

      Hey Jenn,

      I would hope so since so many CSA farms originate out that way! I did a quick search and found a few, however, I have not used them. I’d be happy if you tried one and came back to give a review so I could include it here.

      Here are a few that either have pick-up locations or deliver to the Watsonville area:

      Live Earth Farm
      High Ground Organics

      Good Luck!
