Meet the Tierra Team
Enriqueta (Queta) has been supplying the Farm Stand with her culinary skill for the past five years. She does her work at the Tierra Vegetables Kitchen. Having a close connection with Wayne and Lee for the past 30 years, she is a valuable contributor to the farm, filled with knowledge and experience. Queta moved here in 1990, following her husband who was one of the first employees of Tierra Vegetables. When speaking of the time she lived in Michoacan, she told of first learning how to make tortillas with a comal or wooden stove in a her aunt's adobe ranch house. Even recently when the masa for the tortillas did not turn out right in the kitchen, Queta called home to help solve the problem.
Save the Farm - News and Information
Since 2002, Tierra Vegetables has been leasing the land that we farm on Airport Boulevard from the Sonoma County Open Space District as part of their greenbelt plan.
At this time, the county requires us to purchase the property that we currently farm.
Tierra Vegetables is seeking to fund this purchase by 2017. The county and the farmers still need to negotiate an easement agreement that will determined the use and final price of the land.
Since arriving at this location in 2002, an array of investments and upgrades have been applied to this location including soil maintenance and biodiversity, the acquisition and restoration of the historic Big White Barn, as well as the establishment of a locally-owned, farm-based business.
Tierra Vegetables welcomes assistance from interested community members. Please support us in our effort to maintain this diverse piece of farmland.
