Jackson Family Gardens – Tucker Taylor

Located in Fulton, Jackson Family Gardens grows specialty produce for the culinary team at Jackson Family Wines as well as several other chefs in the San Francisco Bay Area. The four acre culinary garden is an educational space that speaks to the importance of fresh food in hopes of inspiring people to grow some of their own food and support local farmers. Being soil-farmers, the focus is primarily on building soil organic matter through composting, crop rotations and cover cropping which results in nutrient-dense produce. Through Farm to Pantry and the Redwood Empire Food Bank, some of this produce makes its way to those in need in our local community. Grower of Ark Products.
