Santa Cruz County is a magical place. The origins of the counter culture in
the sixties, the majestic redwoods, a legacy of generations of farming and
caring for the land. We are at 880 foot elevation three miles inland from
Monterey Bay nestled in the redwoods and oaks. Above the fog line for
most of the year, the climate is perfect for growing the many fruits and vegetables. Our roots at JuJu Farms run deep. Born and raised on this
mountain a quarter mile from the farm, our family protected and has been
nurtured by this land. This legacy is passed on to you with every breath of the Santa Cruz Mountain air.
Judy Crawford (JuJu of JuJu farms) moved onto the land in 1979 and grew
produce here for 34 years. She planted seventy five Meyer lemon
trees that continue to produce the best lemons. She left us the land when she passed in 2014, and we are passionate about continuing her legacy of natural farming and
care for the earth.
The enlightened consciousness and concern for health and purity in Santa
Cruz County began on September 27th, 1965 when Ken Kesey and the
Merry Pranksters held their first Acid Test in Soquel, a few miles from our
farm. Jerry Garcia and the Warlocks were there, a week before they
became the Grateful Dead. Jerry continued to play in Santa Cruz County,
doing many gigs here, including at the Town and Country in Ben Lomond
on July 12, 1972 with Tom Fogarty and Merle Saunders (admission $2.50).
Our farm shares the same fertile soil found in Watsonville, famous for
strawberries; Castroville, famous for artichokes; and Steinbeck country in
the Salinas Valley, famous for produce of all kinds. We have created a
living soil for our grow, 100% natural and organic using on the finest natural
-From our family to yours, only the best!
