Local Highlight- Rainbow Carrots
DID YOU KNOW: That Every. Single. Carrot served at Oxy is from a local farm?
This week’s local highlight is Carrots from County Line Harvest Farm. County Line Harvest is a certified organic farm with two locations in California: one in Petaluma, Marin County, and one in Thermal, Riverside County. The Thermal location is considered local and is just 135 miles from Oxy. The two farm locations allow them to grow produce year-round. They grow lettuces, specialty greens, roots, herbs, strawberries, tomatoes, peppers and summer squash.
David Retsky started County Line Harvest with only six acres, and named the farm after its location on the Sonoma-Marin County line. Since its start in 2000, the farm has expanded to its two current farms that, together, total nearly 100 acres. County Line Harvest's Petaluma farm has been certified organic since 2004, and its Thermal location has been certified organic since 2010. Find local carrots from County Line Harvest and other local farms at Homestyle, the Salad Bar, and the Pasta Station.
