Peach Jamboree (Woodleaf Farm)

Woodleaf founding farmer Carl Rosato was ready for retirement and sold this dynamic organic farm in 2015 to Danny and Andrew. The two had worked in organic agriculture together since 2001 in the central coast area and were ready for their own venture. With support and help from family they purchased the farm, and for their first season Carl mentored them, sharing his knowledge so they can continue to steward the land with integrity and carry on the legacy of Woodleaf’s high quality fruits and veggies.

In July 2017, the farm suffered a serious setback when intense wildfires rolled through Northern California, badly burning most of their farm structures and home. The extensive destruction was mostly structural and the orchard survived with minimal damage. Thanks to the overwhelming positive support and encouragement from the farmers market community, the farm is slowing recovering and rebuilding.
