"Welcome to Curbstone Valley Farm"

a small organic farm and native garden located on California's Central Coast

About The Farm

Founded in 2007, Curbstone Valley Farm is a small private family farm. Situated on seven-and-a-half secluded woodland acres in the Santa Cruz Mountains, along California’s Central Coast, the property is located in USDA Zone 9b (Sunset Western Garden Zone 15). The terrain here is challenging to farm, and steeply sloped, changing in elevation by more than 300 feet. Flanked by two creeks, and surrounded by mature native Redwood, Fir, Madrone and Oak, the setting here is truly peaceful, and beautiful.

 

About The Goats

The farm’s focus is centered around a small herd of ADGA and AGS registered Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats. Our principle breeding goals are focused toward excellence in dairy production, while maintaining correctness, and soundness, in conformation. In addition to attending various shows each season, the herd participates in continuous DHI 305-day milk test, and Linear Appraisal. Our herd is tested annually for CAE, CL, and Johne’s Disease.

About The Gardens

We maintain an heirloom open-pollinated kitchen garden, and an heirloom orchard. Areas outside the fenced gardens are planted with a variety of California native plants, and deer-resistant, drought tolerant, flowering annuals and perennials, to encourage a diverse array of pollinators to the farm. To protect our waterways, and the farm’s resident wildlife, all of our gardens are grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers.
