School Champion Suzie's Farm
Suzie?s Farm is a 70-acre USDA-certified organic farm located thirteen miles south of downtown San Diego. We grow over 100 varieties of seasonal vegetables, herbs, flowers, and fruits, year-round. Our Suzie?s farm-ily includes 85 employees, a handful of happy farm dogs, and a fleet of 300 egg-laying hens. Suzie?s Farm is a creation of Robin Taylor and Lucila De Alejandro and is first and foremost a family farm. Our mission is to feed San Diegans the freshest and highest quality produce while creating a community of people who are passionate about organic, locally grown produce. Suzie?s was established in 2004, on the property adjacent to Sun Grown Organic Distributors, a sprout and wheatgrass company operated by Robin and Lucila for twenty-five years. Our farm is named after a Norwegian Elkhound who appeared on the property in early 2004. When the property became available, Robin and Lucila jumped at the opportunity and established Suzie?s Farm, named after the dog they?d found there. The first items grown at Suzie?s were edible flowers and herbs. Since 2004, we?ve expanded in both size and scope, and now grow a multitude of vegetables, herbs, and fruits on 70 acres of beautiful farmland south of Imperial Beach. In 2010, we began our CSA program, which has become the cornerstone of our company. We?re honored to feed our local community and encourage all of our customers to become a part of our farm-ily by visiting the farm for a tour or seasonal event. We?ll see you in the field!
