About Us: Steve and Lisa Pilz run the farm, which Steve’s Grandfather, Edmund Pilz, began. Ed began farming in 1927. He farmed many farms in this area. His favorite being Hillcrest. He chose this site as his home. Our farm sits on a beautiful hillside overlooking the Loomis Basin in the rolling hills of Placer County. On clear days you can see Mount Diablo to the Southwest! Hillcrest has seen many varieties of fruit trees come and go since 1927. The mandarin trees that Ed budded and planted back in the late 50’s still exist. About 7 acres of vegetables and flowers are also grown on our farm.

About Us: Plum Possum is a small farm on the outskirts of Lincoln owned and run by Valerie and Jeff. Our fields are diverse, sustainably grown, and produce a wide range of colorful summer vegetables, winter roots, and year-round staples.
We grow some unusual crops, both to keep things interesting for ourselves and to challenge assumptions about what farm-fresh food encompasses. So many plants can be grown in our long summers and mild winters that are not widely available. The grocery store selection is just a small window into our many food options and broadening that window can increase the interest and enjoyment people get from their food. If there’s something you’d like to see grown locally, tell us about it!
