Sonoma County, We're Here for You.

Dear Sonoma County,

Our hearts go out to our members who have lost their homes or are still evacuated and unsure. As we go through the next few weeks and figure out what the "new normal" looks like in our area, please let us know if you need a temporary hold or to change your address.

If school is closed and your children are getting antsy inside, air quality out on the farm is O.K. so we're open all week! Bring a mask just in case and come out and walk around the farm to let your kids run out their energy.

Dogs & Cats Love Pastured Meats Too!

Dogs & Cats Love Pastured Meats Too!

We love our meat. It nourishes us and grounds us. Do you share this wealth of nutrition with your pets? Dogs and cats both thrive off of and love when we share great food with them. Cats are natural carnivores that instinctively hunt, whereas dogs are omnivores and scavengers by nature and must be trained to hunt.

Eating raw meat, bones, organs and some vegetation was the norm until kibble was introduced in the  1940's. In just 70 years, how could our animals body's adapt to this drastic of a dietary change? There is now a rise in animals who are experiencing human health problems like diabetes, cancer, and kidney issues.

Can You Do Us a Favor?

Can You Do Us a Favor?

This past year has been filled with a move from Oakland and adjusting to life on a farm, learning a new business, and listening closely to members to hear what support they need in order to be a part of the best CSA on the market.

If you've been a member with us this last year, THANK YOU! Thank you for your support in the ownership transition and the feedback to make us who we are today. Because of it, we are officially dialed, ready to grow, and impact our community in a big way. But we need your help in getting the word out!

Happy One Year Anniversary to the Squires! 

A Letter From Farmer Kris:

A little more than a year has passed since my family and I took over Tara Firma Farms. Challenges abound, we are feeling more and more confident each day running the CSA and farming the land responsibly. "Learn something new every day is our mantra" and there is still so much to learn. With that said, we want to take the next four weeks to share with you a little about where we came from, where we are now and where we hope to be in the near future!

Summer Farm Update & 50/50 Burger

Summer has taken over the farm by storm! It’s here for good… is the 4th of July already here? The farm has been bustling with activity-- we have been getting ready for piglets (fingers crossed that we should have them the first or second week of July), and the chickens are happily continuing their good work with the compost piles and egg production.

Simply Delicious Pancakes

Today I am sharing one of my favorite go-to's for breakfast. It is quick, nutritious and delicious!

Growing up, I loved pancakes.

As I grew older I realized that I am one of the many gluten intolerant people in the world. It was a sad day to realize a lot of foods were no longer an option. (But my health and happiness improved when I began to honor my bodies needs)

Bringing fat back into the kitchen

We’ve been taught to banish fats… Low-fat milk, no fat this and that...you turn on the TV and hear "to get skinny, cut the fat". It can become quite the headache with all of the information. So here I offer you a simple solution to try- and with this option you have the chance to build your immune system up and make your food taste BETTER than you could imagine.
