We place orders with vendors days ahead of pick up so that they can plan their production, reduce waste, and give staff time to make their amazing products. This also allows us to limit our environmental impact and reduce delivery fees for you.
Good Humus Produce is a small family farm, owned and run by Jeff and Annie Main. They farm 20 acres of certified organic land in a little valley called the Hungry Hollow in Northern California. They started farming in 1976 after both graduating from UC Davis, deciding to live on the land and be self-sufficient.
The Good Humus farm family includes Jeff and Annie's three children, Zachary, Alison, and Claire, their dogs Molly and Bean, and uncountable cats. The farmhands team includes folks who have been with them for many years, as well as folks who spend a few seasons interning. Francisco Montez has been with the farm since 1980 and has become a good friend and comrade.
Windbreaks and golden rolling hills dominate the landscape. In their eight 2 1/2 acre fields are mixed orchards, mixed California native hedgerows, cover crops, annual and perennial herbs and flowers and vegetables. With the knowledge handed down from their parents and grandparents, they also produce unique jams and jellies made from their own fruit and herbs, dry tons of our fruit in the California sun, and make wreaths from the dried herbs and flowers.
