Co-founded by Ryan Casey and Ned Conwell in 2005, Blue House Farm in Pescadero occupied a tranquil piece of land south of Half Moon Bay where owner Casey and his group of workers operated 30 acres at the organic farm located just off Highway 1.
On Jan. 1, the land began to be farmed by Conwell and Rachel Dixon, who opened up Dogwood Farm for their first season, where they grow organic greens, berries and flowers. Blue House Farm moved operations to another location.
In addition to running a CSA, Blue House Farm sells its produce at the Pescadero Grown! farmer's markets in Pescadero and LaHonda, the Alemany, Upper Haight and Mission Community farmer's Markets in San Francisco, and the College of San Mateo Farmer's Market.
On the Half Moon Bay Coastside, Blue House will debut this season's offerings at the first day of the 2012 season on Thursday.
Dogwood Farm will start a CSA beginning in June which lasts for 25 weeks until the week before Thanksgiving. A flower bouquet add-on to the CSA is also an option. Members can choose to pick up a traditional box of food or select from Dogwood's offerings at farmer's markets. For more information about the CSA, click here.
