Heirloom Organic Gardens consists of 235 acres, including two locations in Hollister and an additional plot in Panoche Valley. We started our farm tour at the Brians Ranch in Hollister, where farmer Grant Brians and his family live, about 100 miles from the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.
Crops and Kraut: A Field-to-Jar Adventure
In July 2012, CUESA took a bus of adventurers on a tour to see where heirloom vegetables are grown and learn how to preserve them for later. At Heirloom Organic Gardens in Hollister, they learned how heirloom varieties enhance biodiversity and offer full flavor. Then they took a trip to Mountain Feed & Farm Supply in Ben Lomond to discover the magic of sauerkraut making with Farmhouse Culture.
