Historically, cows and goats once roamed our hills as a dairy farm. But today at The Green Goat Urban Farm, we grow salad greens, herbs and fruit. Located in a safe area, our neighborhood has a small village atmosphere with a recreation center, tennis court, playground/park only a block away. Walking distance to trolley/bus lines, restaurants, cafes, shops. Street parking is easy.
We mean green! : Our garden gets the benefit of our compost. Paper, glass, plastic are all recycled. We don’t use chemicals on our garden, or to clean. Linens are all natural fibers. To reduce energy demands, we will launder/replace linens only at your request.
SF currently diverts 72 percent of its waste, best in the nation!
Urban Farm: During the time of the Gold Rush in the 1840-50's, our Noe Valley neighborhood was a dairy farm. Goats grazed on nearby Billy Goat Hill.
Today, we offer you a quiet oasis that is a working mini-farm. In our Mediterranean climate, we grow veggies, herbs, greens and flowers year-round. We have a mini-orchard for seasonal fruit. The pond with goldfish is a relaxing spot to sit and watch birds, butterflies, squirrels and dragonflies flit by. Bees visit the flowering fruit trees in spring – so many the whole tree buzzes! You’ll even spy the occasional egret, great blue heron or red-tailed hawk. Nighttime visitors include raccoons, skunks and opossums. San Francisco isn’t just about Pier 39 sea lions. You’d never think you were in a big city!
