CoCo San Sustainable Farm is a 14.8 acre farm on public buffer land right in the middle of a heavy industrial area. The farm uses recycled water, high in nitrogen, which is otherwise discarded into Suisan Bay (part of San Francisco Bay). We grow fresh produce using sustainable agricultural methods and hydroponic greenhouse growing to provide produce to the Food Bank and Schools.
