A unique project building momentum in Santa Cruz County, we are very excited to welcome them into the fold of responsible farms and food artisans we work with in this region. Blossoms Farm was started by Carin Fortin and Delmar McComb with the vision of establishing a true Biodynamic Farm. Partners in work and life, Carin and Delmar have joined forces to create a small scale, diversified, self-sustaining biodynamic farm that produces low carbon footprint herbs and nutrient dense food for the local community. They are dedicated to restorative farming practices with an emphasis on perennial crops. Blossoms also offers farm-based learning experiences for children and adults partially supported by implementing a Community Supported Herbal CSA system. The farm works to connect children and adults of all ages with the land, food and herbs that nourish and heal them; and to provide agricultural products of the highest quality.
