The Lost Sierra Food Project is a wonderful new non-profit that has set up shop at our farm, and the organization's founders Leslie Pace and Jessie Mazar did a bang up job of engaging the community in growing beautiful food this year. Their mission is to support our local food system and community in the Lost Sierra through food access, education and job training. Please follow them on their Instagram and Facebook page to stay up to date and learn how to support their good work.
My apologies for not updating our website this year! Between a new baby and COVID my mind has been elsewhere. Though Five Foot Farm is not producing as of now, the farm land is still growing food and I'm still involved to a small extent. I'll leave this website up for now, though the information about what we're up to is out of date. -Farmer Elizabeth

What's with the name?
We chose the name Five Foot Farm because the farm's founders - Elizabeth and Cody - are each just over 5 feet tall. In an age where farms are dominated by big corporations and the farmer stereotype is a muscular 6 foot tall dude, we're proud to diversify the field. We hope that Five Foot Farm serves as an example that people of all shapes and sizes can work hard and contribute to the movement of small farms growing real food.
