Shao Shan Farm is a 5-acre farm in Bolinas, CA, that grows organic Asian heritage vegetables, which are sold to chefs, farmers markets, grocery stores, and regional communities. They also donate produce to local food pantries, senior dinner programs, and bi-weekly gleanings.
They received a $4,881 grant to purchase a rotary mower and hoop house. Shao Shan was able to purchase both the mower and the hoop house and put them to good use immediately. They’ve been using the mower to manage their cover crops and the hoop house to grow cucumbers and bitter melons. Farmer Scott Chang-Fleeman told us, “the tunnel and the mower helped us to provide for our expanded market this year, reaching 62 CSA members, two farmers markets, restaurants, and grocery stores.”
