A fifth-generation Santa Barbara resident, Tom Shepherd  began farming organically in the Santa Barbara area in 1973, spurred by a desire to grow healthy food for his community. One of the earliest members of the Santa Barbara Certified Farmers Market Association, where he still personally sells his produce at least twice a week, Tom was one of the original salad mix producers in California.
