Farm History

Honor Earth Farm got its start in 2008 and spent the first two years in cleanup and transition to organic status after three years of neglect.  The hazelnuts were certified organic in 2010.  The farm name is drawn from our love of the natural world and our deep sense of respect for all life.  We work towards a renewal of a spiritual connection with our food and the place it comes from.  Linda Perrine is the farmer/owner and a 2002 graduate of the UC Santa Cruz Organic Farm & Garden apprenticeship.  Prior to 2008, she taught environmental education at Walden West Outdoor School in Saratoga, CA.  Linda also helped launch Full Circle Farm, a non-profit educational organic farm in Sunnyvale, CA.  This project returned 11 acres of public school property back to farming, its former use prior to being converted to a school.
