Clover Leaf Farm LLC

Regenerative agriculture is a systems- and place-based approach to agriculture that restores ecosystems, communities, and economies. It builds healthy soils, reduces air pollution, utilizes water efficiently, and increases biodiversity while promoting equity and public health.

By simultaneously storing carbon, building resilience to extreme weather, and eliminating chemical inputs, regenerative agriculture also empowers farmers and ranchers to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

The overall REGEN1 score is a combination of community engagement and education, practices, and outcomes; weighted based on the level of verification from self reported to certification to 3rd party validated.

Farm/Ranch Vision

Our farm aims to produce great fruit for the people. We are small, but mighty. The idea is to have diversity in all the things we do. Diverse markets and sales. Diversity in the hedgerows and orchard soils. Diversity in our crew of workers and partners. We believe in a CSA model too.

Dixon Ridge

What is distinct about this region?

It’s close to the markets of Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay Area, but it’s very rural and bucolic in many ways. It’s long been a source of high quality specialty crops, and was in a way a big factor in the foodie revolution of the last 40 years. We have great soil, water and climate.

Can you share a story about how you connect to the land?

We walk the orchard everyday we work. The place is filled with all kind of birds (from predators to partners and pests) amphibians and lizards. We also see coyotes and lots of rabbits. These experiences remind us that even next to I-80 that wild sanctuary and lovely food production can co-exist to nourish our mind and bodies.

Is there something about the location of your farm/ranch that lends your product special qualities?

We are in a delta effect region, so the days are clear and warm. At night it cools off due to the breeze from the Sacramento River Delta. That allows for perfect ripening and cool morning harvest.

What is unique or special about your farm/ranch?

At this point our farm represents the lost heritage of stone fruit production in the Solano and Yolo areas. The great era of apricots and peaches here is pretty much only known to history. Our farm hearkens back to the time when Winters, CA sent fresh Royal Blenheim apricots to the White House.
