La Puma Farms is a three acre certified organic urban working regenerative farm which produces a highly diverse set of fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, herbs and edible flowers. Cover crops, mulching, serious composting, building a soil web without tilling, saving and storing water, feeding pollinators and synergistic planting inform our farm stewardship. La Puma Farms has been called “A Shangri-La for Food”, after the mystical valley of longevity. Sharing our Santa Barbara farm with others in this special place allows us to teach, entertain and feed people. Often visitors experience awe, well-being and profound relaxation, resetting their minds and even bodies towards something more peaceful.
