River Garden Farms carefully balances the use of Sacramento River water and groundwater to protect both from potential overuse. We are taking the lead in experimenting with more efficient ways to get water to crops.
River Garden Farms is investing in new technologies in irrigation efficiency, such as drip emitters, micro-sprinklers, and drip tape systems, which are improving water use efficiency throughout the farming operation.
Our staff study and document best practices, conduct tours, speak at industry events to educate others, and work on projects with various environmental organizations. When possible, prudent participation in water transfers allows us to help others survive water shortages while providing resources necessary to enable us to fund important environmental and community projects and programs.
