West Sacramento Urban Farms

Lake Washington Farm

Flourish Farm

Lake Washington Farm Site is located at 1990 Lake Washington Boulevard on a 3.3 acre parcel owned by Engstrom Properties. It currently hosts several small farm business incubators all of which focus on growing specialty produce selected for flavor and excellence. Our farmers welcome you to stop by and see full-fledged agriculture alive and well in your own backyard.

California Stars Farm is owned and operated by Farmer Ben Herston. Ben and his family, who live in Fairfield, have been farming for over 5 years. He's worked in the water and wastewater treatment and conveyance industry for the past 18 years, in both process engineering and electrical controls as a registered California Civil and Controls System Engineer.

Most of Ben’s farming experience is in grass hay, alfalfa and cattle. Ben is a 2015 graduate of the Center for Land-Based Learning's California Farm Academy Beginning Farmer Training program.

Farmer Remee is originally from the Bay Area and moved to Sacramento her senior year of high school. She has been a proud Sacramento resident ever since. After Remee's mom was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimers, she became more aware of the food she eats.

"Plants have always intrigued me a bit. I've had a small garden since I can remember. However, in the past 2 years, I've really become passionate about knowing where my food comes from. I was inspired to start a mini urban farm on my residential urban property, as well as at my parents home."

To the extent that she can, Remee has committed to practicing a no till/low till cultivation regimen. Hence her farm name: No Till Nation. The farm's mission is to grow heirloom and exotic produce varieties for the Sacramento area, under the no till/low till regimen to protect and encourage the native soil food web. Outside of farming, Remee's day job is as a Registered Nurse in the Operating Room. Her new slogan is "Pay the Farmer or Pay the Doctor."
