West Sacramento Urban Farm
Riverfront Farm at the Barn is the fifth and newest site of the West Sacramento Urban Farm Program. Approximately ½ acre, this diversified vegetable farm is located in the most exciting and up and coming locations in West Sacramento, directly next to the Barn in the bridge district. The Barn is a phenomenal building which is not only an architectural gem but will also house Drakes Brewery and host a wide array of events throughout the year. Riverfront Farm will specialize in melons, peppers and heirloom tomatoes along with many other exciting crops. Produce from this farm will be grown without the use of chemicals and will focus on sustainable practices that are good for the earth and consumers.
Sales of produce from the farm will be available at its on-site farm stand which will operate Tuesdays 4:30-6:30 starting in June, the West Sac Farmer’s Market as well as through the West Sacramento Urban Farm Multi-Farm Veggie Box CSA (see website for details on membership). Produce will also be available through Raley’s in West Sacramento, in meals at Drakes Brewery and possibly other local stores and restaurants.
This incredible project could not have been accomplished without the generous support of our lead funder Raley’s, Fulcrum Properties, and Wells Fargo. Stop by and say hello and don’t forget to pick up your so local super fresh veggies for the week. Like us on Facebook for details at West Sacramento Urban Farm.
