Heirloom Organic Gardens looks just like you want your organic farm to look—small fields of baby heirloom varietals, surrounded by rolling hills and filled with cool coastal breezes. Even Grant looks like the very embodiment of an organic farmer. His passion for sustainable agriculture is palpable and inspiring, and it comes through in the quality of everything he cultivates. Grant was a gracious host during our visit and gave us a great tour of his farm. He’s always thrilled to show off his thriving and plentiful fields. At every turn he approaches agriculture from a sustainable perspective—never the cheap way, never the fast way, and certainly never the easy way. Everything is naturally pollinated, picked by hand, and treated with the greatest of care.

One highlight of the farm is Grant’s collection of vintage (but still in use!) tractors and farm equipment. Lined up along the fields in various states of repair, these old beasts are loaded with personality. If only we could find a way to get one to the brewery!
