Potrero Nuevo Farm
Situated in the Tunitas Creek Valley of Half Moon Bay California, our 300 acre farm and wilderness property is one mile from the Pacific Coast. Building healthy soil that will produce healthy plants is at the core of our farming practices. Crop rotation, cover cropping and organic compost are key tools in our operation. We never spray synthetic chemicals, placing the balance and vitality of the whole farm over any single pest or disease challenge.
Potrero Nuevo Farm provides charitable works in partnership with Abundant Grace Coastside Worker. The Farm donates use of its land, harvest support, seed, use of farm equipment and other materials to Abundant Grace Coastside Worker which feeds the low-income and homeless communities. We are pleased to help further the mission of Abundant Grace Coastside Worker, and also the Farm’s mission of providing healthy produce to charity.
About the Farmer
Christine Pielenz hails from Germany. After coming to San Francisco in 1995 she founded the family foundation Potrero Nuevo Fund with her husband, Bill, which supports after-school arts education, school garden programs and sustainable architecture for low-income communities. She always has enjoyed growing her own vegetables; in 2008 she decided she needed more space to grow things and bought Potrero Nuevo Farm.
