Huarache Farms is a cooperative of five friends and homeowners with a shared interest in backyard farming, healthful eating, and sustainability. Mike became interested in agriculture after taking a plant identification class, which opened his eyes to the ever-changing California landscape and propelled his fascination with growing plants.
