The farm

 
 
 
 

What we are all about

We are a small farm in Ventura County, California focused on working towards natural and organic farming practices. We are home to 70-something animals including Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats, chickens, ducks, turkeys, dogs, and cats. The goal of Oats & Ivy is to live a life of self-sufficiency, always striving to do better by the earth, the animals, and our neighbors while sharing, learning, and being part of the community.
 
Our small yet productive garden space rotates crops year round to make the most of the SoCal climate. We grow what we can to feed our family, the animals, and our friends. Organic practices are very important to us. We’re establishing new permanent plants constantly which, most recently, includes a new fruit tree orchard, berries and grapes. Diversity is what we love about this land and are constantly working to improve it.
