Stone’s Throw Farm is located on a 50 acre beautiful piece of land with 3 acres in production using low till, intensive, and organic methods. We grow at 2,400’ elevation in the Sierra Foothills. Stone’s Throw produces a wide range of vegetables, berries and cut flowers for our CSA, Farmers’ Market, grocery, restaurant and wholesale accounts. Our goal is to grow our business to fill more of the local demand for fresh, local and organic produce without expanding our acreage beyond what is needed; grow with intention.
