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 has worked in the water and wastewater treatment and conveyance industry for the past 18 years. In 2018 CA Star farm grew over 10,000 pounds of Butternut and Spaghetti Squash which was sold directly to Nugget Market across the street from the farm at the Southport Shopping Plaza. Ben plans on growing lots of crops for sales to Nugget Market in 2019 making his farms produce the lowest carbon footprint from farm to market anywhere! Truly first of its kind!

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 Alzheimer's, she became more aware of the food she eats.

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.
