Oz Farm grows apples, pears and a large variety of vegetables. We have 17 acres certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF).
Apples and pears are a special feature of the Oz Farming operation. We specialize in the production of unusual and antique apples that are "espaliered" (trained on trellises in rows much like grapes in vineyards). Some of our most interesting and popular varieties include:
Hudson Golden Gem
White Winter Pearmain
Cox Orange Pippin
Belle de Boskoop
King of Tomkins County
Calville Blanc d'Hiver
Oz also grows a selection of cider apples which we press into our own organic juice. We typically make three pressings of fresh apple juice each fall, one each in September, October and November, and are slowly learning the craft of making a decent hard cider. Our apple juice blend customers include restaurants and natural food stores in San Francisco, the wholesale market, local farmers' markets, and schools.
Our market garden features a diverse variety of fruit and specialty vegetables including salad mix, potatoes, peppers, garlic, brassicas, tomatoes, herbs, strawberries, and many others. We also grow about 15 different varieties of cut flowers. We sell our organic produce and flowers at the Farmer’s Markets in Gualala and Point Arena. In addition, we also supply the local Co-op and various restaurants in the area with fresh produce. See what is available fresh from the garden now.
For the 2016 Season, Oz Farm is brining back a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, offering weekly deliveries of seasonal produce from the Farm to our subscribers in the Point Arena and Gualala areas. Under the CSA concept, small farmers and local consumers join together in a mutually beneficial economic partnership—consumers get fresh, organically-raised foods from a source they know and farmers benefit from having a more stable market for what they produce.
