ABOUT RESTORATION OAKS RANCH

Restoration Oaks Ranch is 955 acres of wild oak woodlands, savanahs and cattle-grazing grasslands located 4 miles south of Buellton and 35 miles north of Santa Barbara, California. Featuring beautiful facilities for farm stays and events, Restoration Oaks Ranch is also home to Santa Barbara Blueberries, a nationally recognized UPick berry farm and the Wild Farmlands Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to agroecology education and innovations in local food systems & sustainable land regeneration.

JUICE RANCH PARTNERSHIP CREATES LOCAL CLOSED LOOP FOOD SYSTEM

070224 JuiceRanch Logo

From food to green leftovers to worms to soil to plants then back to food- this process represents a closed loop food system. No landfills, no chemicals, no pesticides, no fertilizers, no plastics, no industrial-scale ovens. Together, Juice Ranch and Restoration Oaks Ranch are proving that we can reduce the environmental impact of producing and consuming food and conserve natural resources while we reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions in the process.

The fresh organic fruits and veggies that go into your Juice Ranch juices leave pulp leftovers behind after the drinks are made. Instead of throwing these leftovers into the trash or a recycling bin, this pulp is picked up by our Wild Dirt team and fed to our happy Wild Dirt worms. This relationship with Juice Ranch is the nucleus of our soil nutrition program on Santa Barbara Blueberries and all Wild Dirt Soil products.

After more than three years of learning, testing and calibrating through Wild Farmlands Foundation innovation projects, we've gained enough knowledge and confidence to transition to this beautiful new way of growing food and building healthy soil. As of June 2022, we haven't used a single gram or drop of chemical fertilizer on any of our berry plants. Ask us why and how we did this. It's a fun and wonderful story.
