Sea to sky farm

Sea to Sky Farm is a CCOF certified organic operation started in 2019, currently in it’s third growing season, located in northern Santa Cruz County. Two ranches comprise Sea to Sky Farm:  

1) 24 acres located 10 minutes from the ocean at 1600’ in elevation, surrounded by coastal redwoods with natural springs, and sites of Native American historical significance in the mountain community of Bonny Doon, aka The "Sky" Farm.

2) 19 acres comprise the "Sea" Farm aka Rancho del Oso, located north of the coastal community of Davenport, nestled among Big Basin Redwoods State Park in a luscious agricultural valley along Waddell Creek known as a healing valley.

Chris runs the daily operations, and comes from four generations of family farming – her great grandfather, grandfather, father and both brothers are farmers.

Our backgrounds include nonprofit ocean conservation, wildlife biology, old growth canopy research, backcountry guiding, and youth conservation corps work in Yosemite National Park.
