About Us: Hillview Farms is a “neighborhood farm” providing the community with local, fresh food. Our goal is to bring people together through an appreciation for food and farming in fun and informative ways to support a healthy community. The farm uses sustainable practices to inspire the community to live a healthier lifestyle.
Hillview Farms accomplishes this goal by providing a farm stand to connect people to the land, and by selling produce at local farmers markets. We believe that healthy soil = healthy families = healthy communities.
Our produce is available at numerous farmers’ markets and restaurants within the Placer County area, as well as at our very own farm stand, which enables us to directly connect the community to the very land on which their produce is grown. We invite you to visit us year-round at the Saturday Old Town Auburn farmers’ market, and at our seasonal farm stand that starts in June. At Hillview Farms we are proud to be YOUR local neighborhood farm!
