Central Coast CRAFT is a collaboration of farms, farmers, and friends along the central coast of California. The group was formed in early 2010 by a group of farms in the Pescadero area.

Throughout the growing season, farmers, apprentices and employees of local farms come together for field days and other events at  participating farms. These events give aspiring and experienced farmers the opportunity to meet each other, see other farms in action, ask questions of seasoned farmers, and learn about targeted topics like pastured poultry, no-till agriculture, managing a CSA, herb production, and irrigation systems. You can view photos from past events in our foto gallery.

Planning for each season's CRAFT events takes place in the winter. If you are a farmer in the local area and would like to be involved, please contact us

If you are not on the Coastside, but are interested in getting a CRAFT group started in your area, contact us as well.  We'd love to share our experiences and help more CRAFT groups get up and going and perhaps coordinate on events!

Good luck in your farming endeavors!
