The Ecology Centers Newly Renovated Farm Stand

The Ecology Center shares daily organic, locally-grown ingredients in their newly-renovated Farm Stand. Gathering from local farmers and purveyors in addition to the fruits and vegetables they grow on-site, all ingredients are sourced within 250 miles of San Juan Capistrano. The new Farm Stand reflects the first step in The Ecology Center’s larger farm expansion and redesign efforts.

The retail stand renovation marks the beginning of the transformation of the non-profit’s recently acquired 27 acres into a community farm that practices ecological agriculture. With the purpose of providing the community with organic, local, seasonal ingredients and tools to nourish families and support a thriving ecosystem, the Farm Stand is stocked with ingredients curated to reflect the community and region.

Much of the diversity in fruits, veggies, flowers, herbs, and pantry products will be grown on site. Since taking over the adjacent 27 acres of organic farmland in October, they have begun planting dozens of varieties of vegetables, and nearly 5 acres of organic strawberries. In addition to these ingredients grown on site, Farm Stand offerings also include fresh, organic fruits and vegetables sourced from local farms and purveyors, and artisans. Every week, the Farm Stand features organic breads from Rye Goods, a local partner who provides delicious breads using ingredients that have been used for centuries. Their mission is to “provide delicious breads and pastries that you can feel good about eating.”

Celebrate the bounty of our region and experience the superior quality of ingredients provided by The Ecology Center’s and its network organic farms and purveyors. The Farm Stand is open daily, Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
