Community Spotlight

Fiddler’s Green Farm

Fiddler’s Green Farm of Brooks, California is one of the oldest organic farms, earning certification in 1982. Jim Eldon bought the farm in 1991 and has kept it intentionally small, employing just 4 people year-round and growing delicious roots and greens with his wife, Julie Rose. While we wait for Spring and FGF’s terrific asparagus, go deep to the roots this season and enjoy their artful black or watermelon radishes from the Thursday or Sunday Civic Center Farmers’ Markets.

Shannon has been absolutely invaluable to ExtraFood. Why? Because she’s been doing a regular food trip (Kaiser Hospital to Mill Street Center) on the weekend, when it can be challenging for us to keep trips handled consistently. Often doing her trips with her young son, she did her first Kaiser trip in September 2014 and has been committed ever since, rescuing 2,430 lbs of food on those Kaiser trips, not to mention helping out on other trips as well. We are blessed to have a volunteer like Shannon who has been as dependable as they come!
