Agritourism on Laguna Farm - Sebastopol - Sonoma County


Agritourism on Laguna Farm

Laguna Farm RadishesGrowing into 2015, Laguna Farm is celebrating 30 years of Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) farming. Blooming into this milestone is an occasion to celebrate agriculture and inspire the community to continue to support local farms. 

In 1985, founder Scott Mathieson, pioneered the West Coast CSA movement and seeded the first of his growing fields nestled along the Laguna de’ Santa Rosa watershed. Long time employees and now, proud new owners Jennifer Branham and Ignacio Romero have maintained and
expanded on Mathieson’s commitment to regenerative farming, since their purchase in 2011.

About Laguna Farm

The CSA and farm operate year round, accepting memberships through out the year. The foundation of the farm is their direct sales from farm to eater, where members sign up for a weekly subscription box of sustainably grown seasonal produce. Serving the broader community, Laguna Farm is a meeting place, educational/social hub and business incubator. The farm has become an agrarian center point.
