Blue House Farm

Ryan Casey

Driven by a shared passion for sustainable agriculture and rural living, lifelong friends Ryan Casey and Ned Conwell started Blue House Farm in 2005 on a 5 acre parcel near Pescadero, CA. Today, the farm is managed by Ryan, and has expanded to a total of 30 acres spanning across a few sites. Cool weather crops like lettuces, broccoli, leafy greens, and strawberries are grown on the original ranch site, located in a cool, foggy valley a few miles from the coast. Warm weather crops like dry-farmed tomatoes and peppers are grown on a new ranch that sits just above the fog line and receives more sun. Both sites are surrounded by magnificent Redwood and Douglas Fir forests and rolling coastal prairies. Ryan feels especially fortunate to grow in such a beautiful place and to be a part of a burgeoning group of young farmers on the Central Coast…
