Operators Of Singing Frogs Farm
Elizabeth and Paul Kaiser have operated Singing Frogs Farm in Sebastopol, California since 2007. They met in Peace Corps in The Gambia, West Africa where Elizabeth first worked to support farmers in areas of nutrition, health and self-sufficiency while Paul worked in tropical agroforestry to convert degraded lands into economically viable and biologically diverse and resilient farmland. Since then, Paul has received dual masters degrees in Natural Resources Management and Sustainable Development. Elizabeth received dual masters degrees in the Public Health field and worked with immigrant farmer families in Sonoma County for 9 years before transitioning to a full time farmer. At Singing Frogs Farm, Elizabeth and Paul developed a highly intensive, no-till, ecological management system for their small but mighty vegetable farm and CSA which has brought tremendous benefit to their soil, ecology, water, and livelihood. Elizabeth and Paul have received five awards for their innovative, ecological farming practices. For the past few years, they have focused on sharing their model of successful small scale, organic, no-till vegetable production and agroecology. Elizabeth and Paul have both served on various Farmers’ Market Boards and Paul currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Community Alliance with Family Farms (CAFF).
