Meet Our Growers
Riverdog Farm is a 450 acre certified organic, diversified family farm that grows vegetables, fruits, nuts, and raises chickens and pigs. We were started in 1990 by husband and wife team Tim Mueller and Trini Campbell. We are located in the beautiful Capay Valley where rich creek-bottom soil, intense summer heat, and winter frost make exceptionally tasty fruits and vegetables. Since the beginning, we have used a system of compost, crop rotation, cover cropping and hedgerow planting to keep our soil healthy and to promote a healthy ecosystem around our farm. Our animals are integrated into our farming system by providing natural fertilizer for orchards and fields and are all raised on organic pasture.
We grow over 80 different crops and large diversity of varieties. We have an integrated pasture grazing system throughout our orchards that enables us to utilize the space between trees for organic pasture and provides shade for the grazing chickens. The manure from the chickens acts as a natural fertilizer for the trees.
Our philosophy is that by taking care of our employees, land, and animals, we are helping to create a food system that is better for everyone—and one that tastes better too! As one of the first organic farms to sell at the Berkeley Farmers’ markets, we have been helping to bring organic, seasonal, local food to the fore of the sustainable food movement for over 25 years.
We employ 50 people year-round and have multiple generations of families working at our farm. Our farm crew is like family to us, and we would love to have our family’s food be a part of your table.
