Full Belly Farm Tour
Nugget Markets’ produce managers and buyers just got back from a fun-filled trip to visit our friends at Full Belly Farm in the Capay Valley. While on our visit, we learned all about the 300-acre farm that has been growing organically for more than 28 years. Fully Belly Farm is family owned and operated, and their tender love and care shows in their delicious products. Dru Rivers, one of the founders of the farm, shared their passion for not only growing food, but also growing farmers. While the concept sounded a bit strange at first, Dru explained that Fully Belly Farm offers an internship to students who are interested in starting their own farms. Full Belly’s internship program has grown more than 100 farmers, resulting in more than 100 new organic farms across our country.
