If you simply want to have a whole lot more food & fun with a whole lot less work...

Welcome to the magical world of perennial edible plants.
Hi, I'm Dr. Christy!
I've been practicing natural medicine for 19 years. 6 years ago, my family and I moved to the mountains to start our family homestead. My goal was simple ... "How do I grow tons of food and medicine, that's super nutrient-dense and delicious, with the least amount of work?" The answer ... perennial plants.
Hi, I'm Avry!
I began my agriculture journey 10 years ago and have been farming and gardening naturally ever since. This path brought me to California and eventually meeting Dr. Christy at Sandhill Springs Farm. After farming annual vegetables for years and understanding the work involved, growing perennial plants is a no-brainer!
Why Perennial Plants?
Unlike typical annual garden veggies, perennial plants come back year-after-year. They have the intelligence to be able to rest and regenerate themselves. Many of them mine deep for nutrients and minerals and have natural protection against diseases and pests. If we are what we eat, we want to eat SMART, RESILIENT, PERENNIAL FOOD!
We're blessed to be homesteading on a piece of pristine land in the Santa Cruz mountains that never has had a drop of chemicals touch it. We call it Sandhill Springs Farm. Our plants are irrigated with a freshwater spring that bursts out of our mountain and all of our crops are grown organically and with loving intentions. Now our food forest is producing more than enough for our families, and we're happy to be able to share our abundance with you.
