Mountain Bounty Farms Offers Fresh Produce Year-Round

  Mountain Bounty Farm celebrates 16 years of family farming this year. A 15-acre family farm located high on the forested contours of the San Juan Ridge near Nevada City, Mountain Bounty is the longest running  Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)  program in Nevada County. This relatively new social model connects you to your food, the land, and to those that tend the soil. CSA is an economic system that allows you to make a direct connection with a family farm; a farm you know, a farm that adopts careful land stewardship practices, and a farm which produces exceptional quality food. The benefits of a CSA based food system are many. Besides providing fresh organically grown produce, CSA farms provide non-farmers with an understanding of the challenges and rewards of farming. As a customer at Mountain Bounty, you participate in the risks and uncertainties of farming as well as sharing the bountiful harvests.  Having direct contact with the land through your food and your farm can be a tremendously rewarding experience. Belonging to Mountain Bounty Farm benefits you, your family, the local economy, and the environment. The farm is run by husband and wife, John Tecklin and Angie Tomey, who share a love for the land and a passion for eating good food. When John started the farm his goal was to provide excellent quality food for the community…
