New Land Listing in Solano County

Solano County ID #1350: 54.5 acre Soul Food Farm has 10 extra acres for lease or partnership.
Soul Food Farm, a certified organic poultry operation in Vacaville producing eggs and broilers, is looking for a vegetable farmer to lease or partner on 10 extra acres of their property. They have recently installed a new irrigation system, which the farmer would benefit from, as well as potentially having access to some of the owners’ equipment. There are also two shipping containers available for storage and this portion of the property has its own access road. The property features a winter well at 20 gpm, however May-October there is access to the very affordable Solano Irrigation District water at 60 gpm and 60-80 pounds of pressure. Class 1 soils have been slightly compacted from historic grazing but are ready for vegetable, fruit or nut production. Soul Food Farm has been certified organic by CCOF for over 8 years and an organic producer is required. The landowners are interested in farmers who are mature, committed and easy going.
