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.
Located on thirty-two acres of pasture in Guinda, California, Pasture 42 is a small-scale family farm dedicated to sustainable farming practices. Prior to landing in the Capay Valley, farmers Susan and Ken farmed in Southern Oregon on fifteen acres of pasture. Since 2007 they have been producing pasture-raised, organically fed meat, eggs, dairy products and olive oil, as well as the occasional fruits and vegetables. Pasture 42 uses no pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers, refrains from giving animals antibiotics or hormones, and uses organically grown feed except when it is impossible to find. A large part of sustainability, and one that they feel is often overlooked by many consumers in the push to consume organic foods, is buying locally. Buying locally both reduces food miles and keeps money in the local economy. They are currently looking for ways to get more, and ideally all, of their purchased inputs, especially feed, locally.
