About Us / SB Produce History: My grandparents made a living off of their small homestead here in the Kern River Valley. I grew up in mining camps all over the western US where we had to grow as much as we could in order to eat as it was usually too far to go to the grocery store more than 2 - 3 times a year. Even after leaving home I usually had a small piece of land where I was growing something! Now that I am settled down in one place I have been able to devote more time to creating a sustainable ecosystem that leaves as little mark on the land as possible. This is a work in progress so there is always some kind of "experiment" going on. In addition to a market garden we have heritage bred chickens for meat and eggs, raise our own pork and beef, and now have added Navajo Churro sheep to the mix for meat, fiber, and maybe dairy. We operate with as much solar power as possible and have a white water system. Very little on the place is being used as was originally intended as we upcycle as much as possible.
