Riverhill Farm got its start back in 2001. We grow to the highest standard of sustainable organic production, and is certiﬁed by California Certiﬁed Organic Farmers (CCOF). In all our practices, we endeavor to balance productivity and proﬁtability with care for the place on which we depend for our livelihood. The farm is gorgeous and full of life.
Native plant hedgerows and ﬂower borders ensure an abundance of pollinators and beneﬁcial insects to assist us in our work, and encourage a tremendous diversity of bird life, which we appreciate for their song and appetite for insects and weed seeds. 90% of the farm is irrigated with drip, which conserves water, and we protect the soil each winter with cover crops. Those cover crops enrich and improve the soil, improving crop yield, disease resistance and water retention.
