Where are we located
GirlFarm is tucked away at the top of a watershed bordering Northern California and Northern Nevada, an easy 30 minutes drive from Reno, Nevada. Through the work of volunteers, one determined full-time farmer, and two part-time farmers - sustainable land and water management practices have been employed since August of 2008.
