Our mission is to educate, promote and increase awareness on how our food is grown, propagated and distributed to minors and underserved, unrecognized, and fragile populations, particularly in the food desert areas of Santa Barbara County. We donate food to those in need, supporting individuals and other charitable organizations with natural and organically farmed products. The Summerland Sweet Wheel Farm will be a place to preserve, protect, and enhance life and spirit through organic farming and green space.

I have had cancer for twelve years. I have had the benefit of being a participant in the Farmed Food Solution Programs from the Santa Barbara Agriculture and Farm Education Foundation. Since COVID, I have not been able to purchase all of the fresh, organic food that I am supposed to be eating. The food that I receive from Sweet Wheel Summerland Farm is better than any food that I could buy or get. This has made a huge difference to stay on my feet and help my body continue to fight cancer. Thank you Sweet Wheel Farms.

No Farms; No Food.

Santa Barbara Agriculture and Farm Education Foundation has implemented a $3,000,000 campaign for better irrigation systems, innovative delivery, food and grain storage, and eco-utilities. The farm campaign seeks to deliver not only to Santa Barbara County, to be the first closed-loop food system; but, to be a national leader in donated pure foods. With a gift to the foundation, you can remedy community health and food insecurity with chemical-free food.
