Common Ground Farm Collective

Produce

Tucson, Arizona

We are proud to be start-up and ongoing supporters of a new farm called Common Ground Farm Collective at the old Buckelew Farms land on Highway 86 just 20 miles west of Tucson. After months of planning, planting, and nourishing, you are now receiving a few items from them each week in your shares! Common Ground Farm Collective joined our Tucson CSA family in early 2022 and provides us with locally, sustainably grown veggies and herbs as one of our primary producers.

While they acquired and manage 30 acres, they have conservatively started with production in the first 5 acre field. For the first few years of their operations, we hope to support Common Ground Farm by incorporating 1 – 3 of their items into your weekly shares, depending on production and availability. We will continue to work with and support our long-time farms, both Crooked Sky and Sleeping Frog Farm, while also looking at supporting new efforts with an eye towards sustainability and diversity in your shares.

Here is a little more about Common Ground Farm that Sarah Brown and Dani Radacosky-Pentoney co-own and operate:

Our mission is to steward land and water resources responsibly, grow food for our communities, provide access to farmland for farmers, and teach the next generation how to grow food and fiber sustainably. We see Buckelew Farm as a unique resource and opportunity to develop food businesses in our region without beginning farmers and ranchers assuming the risk and financial burden of purchasing land outright at market rates. Our vision is to create a model for farming that lowers the barrier to entry for farmers, supports the long term viability and success of their operations, and promotes care for and regeneration of the land, as well as conservation of water resources. If our small farm collective is able to establish a foothold at Buckelew and sustain itself, we think it will serve as an example to others about how to start farming on leased public or private land with less than average upfront capital expenses. Our cooperative model also allows for a level of mutual support, shared responsibility, and flexibility that is not possible with traditional owner-operator and family farm models.
