About Wayside Ranch
Emma and Craig run Sonoma County’s Wayside Ranch and have been farming organically in Sonoma County since 2011 and selling at local farmers markets. Around that time, a 36 acre almond farm in Shafter, CA (Kern County) that has been in the family for over 30 years was passed down from Emma’s grandfather, Roger Frantz, to her father, Tom Frantz. Our goal is to combine energy and excitement for farming sustainably with a passion for environmental justice.
Our Farming Practices
Wayside Ranch is run by Emma and Craig and our goal is to make radical changes to traditional almond farming. Our pollinating bees come to us locally – less than a mile away! 2013 marks the year when we will take out several acres of trees to plant native grasses and flowers for bee habitat. We put 5 tons of compost on each tree, yearly. This is in place of synthetic fertilizers. We use water efficiently with our drip irrigation system. Integrated pest management is key; observing and encouraging natural enemies of pests that can threaten each crop.
