Gowan Batist

Fortunate Farm is an intergenerational family farm that grows heirloom vegetables, berries and flowers in the small town of Caspar in Mendocino County. We farm with sincere care for the land. We grow primarily annual vegetables and perennials including fruit, flowers and rhubarb, and whenever possible use open-pollinated seeds from local seed growers. Our practices are beyond organic. We don’t use pesticides or herbicides and our farming methods are based around composting and minimizing soil disruption. Aside from providing nutritious food to our community, our primary goal is to sequester carbon.
