Jacobs Farm

Jacobs Farm

Founded by Larry Jacobs and San­dra Belin in 1980 as a small organic fam­ily farm, Jacobs Farm remains com­mit­ted to ben­e­fit­ting peo­ple and the envi­ron­ment for gen­er­a­tions to come. Their mis­sion is to grow great tast­ing, healthy food in a socially and envi­ron­men­tally respon­si­ble manner.

They strive for a sus­tain­able approach to agri­cul­ture, using sound busi­ness prac­tices and organic farm­ing meth­ods. With their unwa­ver­ing vision geared towards social change, they are proud to have helped many indi­vid­u­als and com­mu­ni­ties prosper.

Over sixty vari­eties of herbs and edi­ble flow­ers grace their north­ern Cal­i­for­nia coastal farm­lands. The farm has pio­neered organic grow­ing prac­tices and never used toxic, per­sis­tent pes­ti­cides or herbicides.

Founders Jacobs and Belin are deeply com­mit­ted to sus­tain­able, organic grow­ing prac­tices. In 2009, Jacobs and Belin received the Eco­log­i­cal Farm­ing Association’s (Eco-​Farm) “Stew­ards of Sus­tain­able Agri­cul­ture” or “Sustie” award for their life­time achieve­ments in sus­tain­able agriculture.
