Farmers: Kristen Draz and Will Holland
Kristen Draz and Wil Holland are two young farmers stewarding a 1.5 acre microfarm nestled on the San Juan Ridge just north of Nevada City. They spent several years learning and working under some of Northern California’s most experienced and skilled organic growers before joining forces to return to the foothills and start FogDog Farm on leased land. They farm on a hand-powered scale to produce over 60 kinds of vegetables and fruit and use minimal tillage, crop rotation, cover crops and natural amendments to keep their soil alive and healthy.
