Marty Jacobson and Janet Brown, and 3 full-time employees.
2 acres (on which herbs for hydrosols and oils are grown) in Lagunitas, 10 acres (on which all the vegetables are grown) in Nicasio, and 20 acres in Petaluma, about 35 miles from the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.
In 1994, Marty and Janet began growing heirloom tomatoes organically on 1.5 acres at their home in Lagunitas. They have since diversified and expanded, adding crops, varieties, and value-added products. An all-weather farm with distinct seasons and highly mineralized, clay-based soil, Allstar uses a diverse cover-cropping system, microbiological drenches, and aged nutritional mulches. They grow over 100 varieties of 10 primary crops on the Lafranchi family dairy and cheese factory in Nicasio. The land is permanently protected by a Marin Agricultural Land Trust conservation easement. Janet is active in farming issues and is a Marin Organic board member.
