Deep red, juicy, mouth-watering tomatoes, fresh-picked, unforgettable strawberries, crunchy, crispy greens. The best way to enjoy healthy food is to buy the highest quality, freshest picked and most locally produced ingredients. And the best way to get them is through our weekly farmbox CSA program.
What's a CSA?
CSA stands for "Community Supported Agriculture" and for our members it means they can rely on us to grow and deliver the highest quality, freshest produce and eggs available on the market - and at a better value than they can get it anywhere else. We grow 85% or more of everything that goes in your box and anything else will come from high quality, organic, local farms so you can always trust that your Eatwell Farm box is the healthiest and best food for you and your family.
What if I get produce I'm unfamiliar with? What if I don't know how to cook?
Don't worry about it!
We provide quick and easy to use information for preparing, storing and cooking everything we send your way.
Providing you the highest quality, year-round produce is our passion and frankly a lot of us are not used to the cornucopia of delicious foods available seasonally. That means sometimes members get things they haven't seen before which can be daunting, so while some CSA's will give suggestions on how to use items in your box, we provide a full, zero-waste suggested menu so if you cook all the meals we suggest, you'll use and enjoy everything in the box.
We also provide information on identifying items, how to store them and what to cook first based on perishability. We strive to go out of our way to help you get the most out of your box, to love cooking and eating at home, and to learn about locally produced food.
Sitting on 105 acres of all organic, pasture-raised, down-to-earth, crunchy-fresh, farm heaven, Eatwell Farm (just outside Dixon, CA) has been providing members (Join Us!) with amazing, fresh-picked produce and pasture-raised chicken eggs for over 20 years.
We grow hundreds of varieties of fruits and vegetables to ensure a year-round, diverse variety of the best produce for our members and to ensure that our cornucopia is as resilient as it is varied and sustainably grown.
Nigel was born in Leicester (pronounced "Lester"), England, and studied at Writtle Agricultural College in Essex. Though the school taught production farming with chemicals, Nigel received permission to fulfill his practicum at an organic farm in Kent, England. He studied drip irrigation in 1985 in Israel, a country where “if you waste water it’s treason.” He returned to England and farmed there until moving to California in 1992.
Lorraine and Nigel met in 2008 and married in 2011. Getting involved in the farm initially in a support role, she developed Drinkwell Softers from her interest and passion for fermented foods into a fully-fledged business, adding efficiency, value and diversity to what Eatwell Farm has to offer. She is now a fully fledged farm girl after helping one of our cows Helen May give birth. The vet, Dr Bravos guided her over the phone while she pulled the calf with ropes tied above its knees. Bandito is doing very well.
Andrew and Eric. At eighteen years old, they are now at college. They say that they have been working the farmers market since they were three weeks old. They now eat food at college and have given up on eggs as they only serve powdered.
Our Crew is the backbone of the farm. Jose, our foreman, oversees around 15 year round crew members (depending on the season) in the field and in the pack house, Roberto and Ramon keep our tractors running in the fields, sowing seed, planting starts. Juanita washes, processes and packages all of your produce. She also prepares the egg coolers for delivery and prepares all of our lavender products. Augustin and Miguel are the “egg guys.” They tend our huge flock of pasture-raised chickens and wash and sort all the eggs after they gather them twice daily. Maysam and Hope are our delivery drivers and Connie is taking over the hot-seat as CSA manager and events coordinator.
