Common Kettle Orangevale, CA

Common Kettle is a 2.6-acre farm and homestead in Orangevale, CA. Our goal is to provide a productive, educational and inspirational environment for the greater Sacramento area, while providing top quality homegrown vegetables and fruit and homemade macrobiotic quality prepared foods. Orangevale is one of the few suburban areas in the greater Sacramento area where agricultural roots are still evident. Large fields and scattered fruit trees still dapple the Orangevale mosaic, which includes modern houses and subdivisions, untended fields, many generation-old fruit and nut trees,  yet little commercial or homestead agriculture. Global economic instability is a cutting reminder that our communities need to be more self-sufficient and sustaining. Re-farming our urban and semi-urban areas is crucial to re-invigorating local economies, reducing our carbon footprints, providing valuable ecological services and re-establishing connection of food with our health and happiness. Common Kettle strives to provide quality products to our community as well as education in a plethora of living skills; including Macrobiotic and Vegan cooking, canning and food preservation, bio-intensive gardening, permaculture, rainwater harvesting, and natural building.
