Spade & Plow is a family farm that got its start in 2015 in San Martin, CA in the Valley of the Hearts Delight. This trio has roots in the Salinas Valley, as Mike (center) was one of the first ever organic growers in the 1980s. Sam (left) and Nick (right) have fond memories of running around packing sheds and climbing on farm equipment as kids, while their dad tended to the farm stuff. The boys, however, also caught the farm bug. And all three with unique passions for the industry. At Spade & Plow, Mike manages farm operations, Sam takes care of CSA, restaurant, and wholesale business matters, and Nick is the go-to for fixing machines and engineering new projects. They’ve got a stellar crew that helps day in and day, out. Spade & Plow is a small but mighty operation, growing against the backdrop of Silicon Valley tech. As a business, our goal is to preserve and honor the farmland that has quickly become developed in Santa Clara Valley. Almost forgot our honorary mascot pup! Doc the farmdog loves chasing jack rabbits and eating cherry tomatoes straight off the vine. He rides shotgun in the farm trucks every time, all the time.
