A Small Organic Farm in the Central Coast Mountains of San Luis Obispo California
Four Elements Organics is an organic farm in the Central Coast mountains of San Luis Obispo, California. We have a unique Mediterranean microclimate that allows us to grow a diverse selection of fruits and vegetables.
Our mission is to work in harmony with the four elements of water, air, fire, and earth, to create a farm that works with nature instead of against nature. We use extensive cover cropping and rotations to build healthy soil, manage our water use wisely, use homemade bio-diesel to keep our air clean, and of course love the suns energy to grow lush crops for our customers.
Our citrus orchard features mainly 'Satsuma' and 'Gold Nugget' mandarins, as well as a variety of other assorted mandarins, grapefruits, oranges, and pommellos. Our young orchard also features numerous varieties of apples, apricots, plums, figs, pluots, peaches, pears, nectarines, avocados, and olives. Please see our Products page for a listing of seasonally available produce.
We supply local nurseries with various vegetables and herbs grown in our straw-bale greenhouse. We primarily sell our produce to local grocery stores and natural food markets, restaurants, and local CSA distributors. We grow medicinal herbs for Elemental Herbs, a natural body care company based in Morro Bay. We are certified organic with CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers).
We host an annual Permaculture Design Certificate Course in collaboration with Earthflow PDC and Larry Santoyo.
