Family farming is alive and well in Southern California. It’s a crazy thing to consider. Farms in this busy hustle bustle part of the world? When you are zooming down the road chances are you might go right by a farm and not notice it. You see, we have to fit ourselves in wherever we can. These aren’t the farms that you see in the midwest-big sprawling fields that go all the way to the horizon. These are plots in rural areas on the edges of San Diego. Thus our name-Edge of Urban Farm. We have fields in Bonsall, Vista and Encinitas. From small to large, we find the spots to grow a variety of crops for you to enjoy.
Clan Murray has been farming in San Diego County for 30 years. We have found ourselves on the edge of a trend for most of that time. Area chefs have enjoyed our selections, as have their patrons. Now it’s your turn. Local is all the rage these days but that is not the reason to step into a “locavore” lifestyle. This simply makes sense. You live here. When you support local business you are building strength in the community. Enjoying foods from the current season connects you to your food stream. Once it has you, you may not let go! I won’t eat a tomato in January because I know it won’t grow here at that time. Besides, I want my tomatoes to taste delicious! Get the picture?
There is a rhythm beyond baseball seasons and football seasons.
Mother Earth’s rhythm is our guide.
We are primary health care providers. Good clean healthy food is your best medicine. Enjoy the benefits of living in this beautiful climate. Support Edge of Urban Farm and contact us for your delicious food today!
We are grateful,
Laura and Scott Murray
