We are the newest wave of farmers, ranchers, and sustainable food system advocates. With a passion for feeding our local communities, we unite to share skills, knowledge and a meal after a day in the field. Founded by farmers for farmers, we support healthy food production by collectively striving toward the economic viability of agriculture as well as the social networks to attract, cultivate and sustain a new generation ready to work the land. And as 2017, we are excited to announce our merger with Community Alliance with Family Farmers, CAFF.

WHAT IS A FARMERS GUILD?
A Farmers Guild is a community of farmers, ranchers and agricultural advocates who gather each month to share resources and info, build lasting relationships and celebrate our local food.
Beginning in 2011, a small group of young farmers and ranchers got together over dinner. Out of that evening arose new friendships, opportunities and partnerships often hard to find in rural areas. Soon, our group grew to over 100 people and we moved our gatherings from a crowded ranch-house kitchen to a local Grange Hall where it soon began to multiply.
Today, the founders of the first Farmers Guild are helping farmers across California start their own local Guilds, building a wider and more interconnected network that encourages, inspires, educates and celebrates local agriculture.
