Riverdog Farm is a 450 acre certified organic, diversified family farm that grows vegetables, fruits, nuts, and raises chickens and pigs. They are located in the beautiful Capay Valley where rich creek-bottom soil, intense summer heat, and winter frost make exceptionally tasty fruits and vegetables. Since 1990, they have used a system of compost, crop rotation, cover cropping and hedgerow planting to keep their soil healthy and to promote a healthy ecosystem around the farm. Their animals are integrated into our farming system by providing natural fertilizer for orchards and fields and are all raised on organic pasture.
Their philosophy is that by taking care of their employees, land, and animals, they are helping to create a food system that is better for everyone—and one that tastes better too! As one of the first organic farms to sell at the Berkeley Farmers’ Markets, they have been helping to bring organic, seasonal, local food to the fore of the sustainable food movement for over 25 years.
They employ 50 people year-round and have multiple generations of families working at our farm that have become like family.
