Lonely Mountain Farm

Cucamelons (Organic) - 8 oz


They look like tiny watermelons, but taste like cucumbers with a citrusy bite.  Delicious pickled or eaten raw!  We love to use them alongside some of our other cucumber varietals for fun textual and visual contrast; think a salad with slicing cucumber, lemon cucumber, and some of these cucumelons tossed with a calamansi vinaigrette and maybe some delicious seasonal produce like Piel de Sapo Melons or Yellow Peaches and some Laura Chanel Goat Cheese

10 acres in Corralitos, about 90 miles from the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.



Farm History

First-generation farmer Kenny found his calling in agriculture working at local farms in Santa Cruz County. In 2009, at age 25, he leased six acres in the foothills of Corralitos to start his own organic farm. Currently, the farm is operating on 10 acres of family-owned land. The intensively farmed parcel is very dynamic, with dairy goats, laying chickens, honeybees, orchards, and beautiful produce all finding their place. The farmers have found their niche growing unusual vegetable and herb varieties, heirloom beans, and cut flowers and selling directly through farmers markets and to chefs. They say, “Our philosophy is embedded in organic principles and strongly influenced by systems thinking, natural resource conservation, and diversity.”
