Long Beach Local
Farmstand 59 is closed for the season. We will reopen Spring 2015.
Long Beach Local is an agriculture based official 501(c)3 non-profit. We focus on training "young" farmers and educating residents about urban farming here in the city of Long Beach. Currently we are an all volunteer organization and rely on donations, grant funding and the sale of our farm products to cover our operational costs.
We have a 1-acre farm located at 2714 California Ave called Farm Lot 59. We grow food and flowers the old fashioned way using our hands, without pesticides and chemicals. We have egg laying hens for pest management and bee hives for pollination and honey production.
Our mission is simple we aim to develop and maintain farmland in an urban setting, to grow specialty crops, and offer the public fresh and healthy food choices, teach farming to the community and aid in the transformation of more urban farm land.
Please spend your food dollars with us. They speak words and help us continue our work. See you on the farm.
