Upcountry Farms is a small-scale, diversified vegetable and flower farm located on 2 acres in the beautiful Jackson Valley of Amador County, CA. We grow over 50 varieties of vegetables and cut-flowers, which can be found at several local farmer's markets and through our Community Supported Agriculture Program (CSA). We are committed to utilizing sustainable and natural farming methods that work to improve the soil health and surrounding environment of the farm, and ultimately provide our community with healthy food and beautiful flowers.
Dan and Tori met in Chico, where they received their bachelor's degrees (not in agriculture!),
fell in love,
and caught the farming bug.
After a few years of inspiration from the agricultural community in Chico,
they decided to move back
to Tori's home of Amador County
and start a farm of their own.
In 2017 they got hitched and started farming!
They have a passion for connecting with nature and growing their vegetables and flowers using sustainable, no-till methods. They are entirely self-taught farmers, and have learned everything through books, a few classes, experience,
and a lot of trial and error.
They enjoy every aspect of farming...
from starting seeds, preparing the soil,
to cultivating weeds, crop planning,
and harvesting with the changing seasons.
