Target demographics: Youth and Adults of all ages, to learn where their food comes from.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Last year, 900 youth visited Pie Ranch and learned about the source of their food; Pie Ranch welcomed over 3,500 people to the farm for educational programming; we began a new CSA for our three partner school communities; we trained four apprentices and three farm interns; and 55 high school youth were employed as HomeSlice interns, learning about food, farming, nutrition and social justice.

Geographic areas served: San Francisco Bay Area

Programs: Our programs provide youth education in food, farming and the environment; training for emerging farmers in organic food production and small-farm marketing; organizing in collaboration with our regional allies to advocate for farmland preservation, affordable access to farmland, and production of local, sustainable food for local markets; public programs including events, classes and talks, monthly workdays and barn dances, and a bustling roadside farm stand.

Mission:
Pie Ranch's mission is to cultivate a healthy and just food system from seed to table.
Results:
Our educational programs have introduced thousands of youth and adults to a working organic farm, taught them about the important benefits of eating healthful, sustainably-grown food, and increased public support for local, organic farmers. Our Emerging Farmer Training has produced nearly two dozen new farmers, who now have the skills and knowledge to work the land and care for the environment. Through regional organizing, we are making San Mateo County a place where more organic local food is available to consumers, where farmland is preserved and continues to be used for food production, and where more farmers can afford to operate small, sustainable farms. In the long term, these programs will help build a healthier, more relationship-based local food system, in which food production will help preserve the precious land, animals, and natural features of the beautiful place we call home.

Working in philanthropy, I've had the opportunity to get to know hundreds of nonprofit leaders. Jered and Nancy are among the best I've known. They truly live the vision that Pie Ranch seeks to achieve, and the rest of the staff are equally committed to creating a just and healthy food system. ... more »

I have volunteered for several different events with Pie Ranch and it has always been a wonderful and valuable experience. Their mission, of sustainable farming and connecting youths to the land, is admirable and necessary. The link between land to the food on our table is a lesson that many ... more »
