It was only three years ago that I first stepped foot on the soil at Suzie’s Farm, and WOW have they come a long way in a short time! My hair, on the other hand, is still usually shaggy (but cut me some slack when I’m on bike).
Suzie’s Farm officially started their organic veggie program in 2004, spent a long while planting/failing/learning and had begun to pick up steam with restaurants and foodies around San Diego when the photo above was taken in ’09.
Fast forward to today and Suzie’s is now the largest urban farm in any major city in the United States – and all organic at that! Their CSA program has exploded. Restaurants across the county feature their produce. And perhaps more than any other success, Robin & Lucila are most proud of the community building that has occurred through their special events and tours on the farm.
Watching some of this transformation occur made it even more of an honor to be asked to help them more effectively tell their story online. Yep, a new website for Suzie’s was due.
We were blessed to work with an incredible team on this project – from Suzie’s motivated “in-barn” staff & visionary leaders Robin & Lucila, to the tireless programming of Joseph Niu & the whimsical hand of illustrator/designer Holly Jones. And now, we are proud to say that the new Suzie’s Farm website is now live!
Go check it out and tell us if it doesn’t make you want to eat more veggies – we dare you.
