Sage Mountain Farm
Hi, we’re Phil and Juany Noble! Together, we own and operate Sage Mountain Farm, and we are an active part of the organic and local food revolution that is sweeping Southern California and the country.
When we moved to the area, we quickly planted a vegetable garden and filled the existing corrals with cows, pigs, goats and chickens. We began with a small garden and we quickly ended up having extra produce. Not wanting to let anything go to waste, we decided to sell the extra produce at the local farmer’s market. From our first visit, people were friendly, thanked us for coming and asked if we would be returning, so we did, and Sage Mountain Farm was born!
The next step was deciding where to establish the farm. Since it’s easy for a conventional farm to contaminate an organic one, we decided on a more remote location in the Aguanga and Anza area. If you have been out to visit this area, it’s fairly remote. But we enjoy farming in the wilderness far away from conventional farms where we can practice and maintain strict organic and sustainable farming practices.
All of the fruits and vegetables on our family farm are grown using organic processes and sparkling clean, natural well water from the San Jacinto Mountains in our backyard. We also maintain strict organic guidelines in raising our steers, chickens and pigs as well.
This road has not been without its bumps and pot holes, but it has been a labor of love and we certainly would not be here today without the support of our local community. At Sage Mountain Farm we feel a strong connection to you, our neighbors, and we enjoy looking out for Southern California’s healthy food needs.
LOCAL, REGENERATIVE AND ORGANICALLY GROWN:
Having Your Arugula and Eating It Too
We have been certified organic since 2006 but since we are no longer supplying large retail chains like Whole Foods and Jimbo’s Naturally, the organic certification is no longer necessary. Rest assured, we are farming the exact same way we have been for the last 14 years under the certification guidelines. Only difference is, we are now able to pass those certification savings onto you! All of the items in our Community Supported Agriculture (C.S.A.) box are either from our farm, or from certified organic farms and local small farmers that use organic practices.
