At their farm stand, open on Saturdays, you’ll find produce that changes by the season, such as peas, lettuces, kale, squash, garlic, carrots, tomatoes, and strawberries. In addition to vegetables, Nye Ranch is well-known for their beautiful flowers and elegantly rustic hand-tied bouquets. Like the vegetables, the flowers vary by the time of year, from sweet peas to poppies to dahlias. All the crops are lovingly seeded, planted, tended, and harvested by the Burns family, and they are proud to sell nearly all of the food they grow within a few miles of their farm. The family, the farm, and their produce are beloved in this small community.
You can find Nye Ranch’s beautiful bouquets and bountiful produce at the year-round Farmers’ Market in Fort Bragg, every Wednesday afternoon from 3:00 to 6:00. The Market is inside the old gymnasium in the City Hall building during the winter and moves outside to the intersection of Laurel and Franklin streets during the warmer months. They also attend the Mendocino Farmers’ Market, which is open from noon until 2:00 pm on Fridays from May through October.
Nye Ranch is located at 23300 North Highway 1, just north of Fort Bragg. Their farm stand is open from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm on Saturdays, year round. Call (707) 964-0939 for more information.
