Oliview Farm: Growing Food with Reverence
Oliview Farm in Shasta County is a local farm with a community-based approach to agriculture. Oliview Farm employs the French Intensive farming method in its market garden by producing more food on less acreage, conserving resources, and increasing sustainability. Oliview takes full advantage of the four seasons by growing in-season produce that benefits the planet and its people.
Its mission is to “Approach the production and provision of food with respect for the innate dignity and beauty of each player in the process – seed, soil, animals, people – as well as the process itself .” This mission guides the farm’s daily activities as it seeks to do farming differently.
