Community Supported Agriculture
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)'s come in many forms, however the basic concept is the same; ordering farm direct and supporting your local small producers.
For founders Ernie and Alex Mullenax, their values lie with Sustainable Agriculture through Holistic Management. They are also the owners of Mullenax Ranch and California Goat Yoga and agriculture is the lifeblood of their passion.
Having ranched for a number of years now, they are active in the statewide agricultural community and professional organizations sharing agriculture with the public. The more they learned, they more they wanted to 'do better' for the land and environment which led them to 'sustainable agriculture.'
Regenerative farming and ranching principles rely on making choices which connect and take into account what's best for the land and environment coupled with farming goals. When we take care of the land, it takes care of us.
Something the 'farm life' has taught the couple is slow and steady wins the race. As you check back on this website, you'll see more farms slowly being added. Yes - anyone can apply they simply need to be a local farm producing goods legal for sale to the public, and practice 'sustainable' agriculture practices in some way to align with the mission of Tehachapi CSA.
Having used their own farm as the initial 'guinea pig' while working out kinks, we have multiple farms signed up and awaiting their coming season to be added on the Order page with available product.
Local producers sharing similar farming values or practices will be added seasonally as their product is available.
