Farmer Profiles

A Farmers Guild for El Dorado Co.

Keven Nowell from 24 Carrot Farm, Placerville, addresses local farmers interested in establishing a Farmers Guild — an agricultural community founded by farmers for farmers. www.farmersguild.org.

Currently a State-wide community based organization, there are currently 10 Guilds across northern California, connected through events, online social media and by sharing practical resources, farmer to farmer, guild to guild…….

One example of farmers working together in Placerville’s  guild is the desire to build a working logo and label that says El Dorado County Grown.  It was mutually agreed that “local” was key in the interests of consumers and restaurants alike, for example, and such a decal could be used by farmers, restaurants and other mutually supportive businesses.
