Established in March, 2021, EARTHseed Farm is a 14-acre solar-powered organic farm and orchard located on the ancestral lands of the Coast Miwok and Southern Pomo Peoples in Sonoma County, California. With the permission and blessings of Graton Rancheria Tribe, our farm is operated and rooted in AfroIndigenous permaculture principles, and built on the long legacy of earth wisdom traditions of people of African descent. Permaculture is a relationship-based ecological design system embedded in indigenous wisdom that elevates ecosystem health while meeting human needs. Our farm is managed by a group of like-minded practitioners, where a variety of apples, pears, persimmons, plums, pluots, pineapple guavas, and mixed berries are grown. We run a Wholesale program, a U-Pick from July to November (open to the public), and Educational Programs prioritizing people of African descent and other communities of color, so that we may support our communities to live in right relationship with our Earth, while healing generations of historic harms.
FOR THE 2023 APPLE TRAIL: U-Pick is by appointment only and we release U-Pick appointments at 9 AM on the Tuesday prior to Saturday U-Pick days. All organic.
