Speciality Organic Produce Farm
Our farm focuses primarily on growing specialty, baby organic produce for Chef Nick Ronan of BIsou and Beso Restaurants in San Francisco. Most of our crops are grown from seed in our own greenhouses, and watered with natural spring water from our property. Our plants are hand tended, planted with companion plants to support their growth, then harvested young to produce the best flavor possible. We are very proud of our great tasting baby carrots, tangy beets, specialty lettuces, tomatoes, and edible flowers.
Here at Napa Kitchen Gardens, we experiment with several varieties of produce to best support our personal chefs who create a ultra fresh seasonal menus. Our garden farm has been planned and operates using the many principles of permaculture, to maximize efficiency, work with nature, and minimize waste.
Our tasting garden has a rich variety of edible flowers and herbs that our chef and guests use to experiment with when creating new tastes for the season. The combination of escaping to our rural countryside property, and eating wholesome organic food will leave you feeling refreshed, recharged, and ready to tackle your next set of challenges. Join us for a seasonal harvest party, for food pairings, and wine tasting too!
Eating from the NKG garden will "feed your body and nourish your soul."
