FARM STAND OPEN SAT. 10AM - 2PM
Welcome to Wilkinson Acres!
Mike and I (Courtney) are second year, first generation farmers who have been working our little slice of paradise for about a year. We came from different careers (Mike was a building engineer and I was a high school teacher), but we decided to give up our day jobs to follow our dream of having our own farm.
With the help of some amazing friends (and the Internet,) we 're learning to farm every single day and we take great pride in our open source approach to farming. Ask us anything!

Growing the Difference
We currently farm on 5 acres in the beautiful Suisun Valley, a small corner of which is a lovely mixed stone fruit orchard. On the rest of our land, we farm a variety of veggies, such as sweet and hot peppers, tomatoes, kale, chard, radish, lettuce, turnips, beets, carrots, cucumbers, and herbs.
We use low till farming practices to intensively grow our CCOF certified organic produce. We believe in building up our soil organics to produce better vegetables, as well as to create a sustainable ecosystem that will continuously provide healthy food to our local community.
You'll see long, thin beds on our farm - these are our permanent beds. Creating and maintaining these beds involves the addition of high quality compost and minimal soil tillage/disturbance. By creating a great soil environment, we encourage good bacteria to thrive. Good bacteria in the soil = better fruits and veggies (and a much happier planet!).
At Wilkinson Acres, our business values reflect our deep respect for the land we grow on, our commitment to food sustainability, and our passion for creating awareness about sustainable farming methods.
Growing the Difference - we believe meaningful change begins at the root of who we are, our produce. Each fruit and vegetable is grown using sustainable methods that ensure we grow the best possible product with the least amount of impact on our environment.
One of the most important parts of our business is growing our community. Through our Saturday farm stand, we provide access to local, certified organic veggies (and fruits, in season) to Solano County and the surrounding Bay Area. Additionally, we provide space for multiple local guest vendors to showcase their products.
Come check us out every Saturday morning (rain or shine) 10am - 2pm.

All of our fruit and vegetables are C.C.O.F certified organic. We appreciate the connection customers have with their food and we carefully check each piece of produce for quality and freshness.
We currently make our produce available to Bay Area restaurants and caterers, as well as at our Saturday AM Farm Stand (Winter Hours - 10am-2pm).
