Celebrating the Modern Crop
The journey to grow better crops isn't easy, but we wouldn't do it any other way.
Hidden in the Hills
Tucked away in the rolling hills of wine country in the Santa Barbara County/Santa Ynez Valley area, we have over 50 acres of hoop houses on our organic farm. As one of the largest cultivators for our crops in California, we feel it is our duty to lead the charge in sustainable, organic farming practices. Our business focuses on developing what it means to be sustainable and organic, ensuring that our farming practices are environmentally sound.
Caring for Our Crops
Precision agriculture (PA) or site-specific crop management (SSCM) is a farming management concept based on observing, measuring and responding to inter- and intra-field variability in crops. By utilizing PA, we are able to reduce the misapplication of products and increase crop and farm efficiency. We've got over 45 total acres of clean and happy plants.
Conserving for the World
Water conservation is a high priority. Watering at the right time of day and for the correct amount of time greatly reduces water waste. We use agricultural film (mulch) and drip irrigation to reduce our water consumption. We also prepare a blend of both dry and liquid fertilizers for each specific field ensuring that every plant gets the nutrients they require throughout their life.
Handling Our Little Pests
We use zero herbicides and we only use OMRI listed inputs to keep our organic designation intact. Weeds are all handled the old fashioned way, with a hoe and shovel. We use beneficial insects and biologicals plus OMRI listed foliar feedings to keep our crops disease free and healthy, providing some of the best yields per acre in the industry.
Sharing Organic Plants the Right Way
Our distribution and sales team bolstered by in-house marketing and product development teams, complete CCA's full-scale service. We can reach more than 250 distributors across California, and are proud to have incredible brand recognition for all of our products. We believe that the core of our success is owed to our quality farming practices.
