Nestled along the Yuba River, Mountain Bounty is a 50-acre organic family farm located high on the forested contours of the San Juan Ridge near Nevada City, California. It grows a great variety of organic produce for its local community. We have two farm sites, each about 2 miles from the Yuba River. Our “home fields” are just off Purdon Road and our larger fields are nearby on Birchville Road. We currently cultivate 18 acres, and the rest of the land is a beautiful mosaic of forest and meadows.
We are the oldest and largest CSA farm in the Sierras. Our farm’s founder, John Tecklin, has been farming since the early 1990s and started Mountain Bounty Farm in 1997. Since then, Mountain Bounty has become an increasingly collaborative effort, with a team of farmers making decisions and working together.
Mountain Bounty offers shares of their year-round CSA dropped off to community pickup locations in Nevada City, Grass Valley, Penn Valley, San Juan Ridge, Truckee, Tahoe, and Reno.
