One Farm at a Time & Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op

Posted by Heifer Sacramento On Tuesday, June 21, 2011
Paul Cultrera, the manager of the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op, was the guest speaker at our June 20th Heifer Sacramento volunteer meeting. Paul introduced himself and his involvement in One Farm at a Time. One Farm at a Time was started by Jeff and Annie Main who are the owners of Good Humus Farm in the Capay Valley.

The Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op depends on local farmers, such as Jeff and Annie, to stock their store with local, organic foods. As Jeff and Annie look towards retiring, they are trying to ensure that their farm remains a farm and is not developed. This is a challenge because the land itself is worth a lot more money to developers than to farmers. One Farm at a Time is an organization that is raising money to "sell off" the real estate value of the land to ensure that it is kept a farmland when they retire and sell the farm. Once enough money has been raised for Humus Farm, One Farm at a Time will help other Farms in the area.

As Heifer volunteers, we are interested in learning more about our local food systems and how we can support a sustainable food system in our area. For more information visit http://www.community.coop/onefarmatatime/.
