FARMING IS A CENTURIES OLD PRACTICE
BUT WE KNOW YOU CAN LEARN SOMETHING NEW FROM THE LAND EVERY DAY
De La Mesa Farms is stepping into the future, with Bryan and Natalie Mesa at the helm. After getting started in Waimanalo, Hawaii the couple moved their family to Tacoma, Washington to apply the principles of regenerative agricultural to create a sustainable, innovative and diversified farm in order to bring the freshest produce, microgreens and mushrooms to local markets, chefs and grocers.
At De La Mesa Farms, we are more than just farmers of organic and specialty produce, including microgreens and mushrooms. Our mission is to strengthen our communities and environment. That means we use beyond sustainable methods to grow our produce. We reduce waste by utilizing as much of what we grow as possible in value-added farm products like salsas, pickles, ferments, fruit vinegars and more. Coming soon, we hope to offer workshops, educational farm tours and popup events at our farm. We sell our produce at local farmers markets to strengthen local food hubs, and we participate in conservation programs to ensure we are good stewards of the land. Every day we seek ways to innovate in how we farm and how we do business to usher in a new era of farmer.
Bryan and Natalie are immigrants and children of immigrants, and they are passionate about the food they grow and cook with. They graduated from the GoFarm Hawaii Program (Cohort 8) in June 2018, an agricultural incubator program. In 2020 they took a leap of faith, left Hawaii and purchased 2.5 acres in Tacoma, Washington to start their new farm.
