Terroir

Location: Full Belly Farms, Guinda, CA

Featuring: Judith Redmond

“Terre” means “land” in French. Terroir, therefore, is a French term meaning all food expresses a sense of place.

It is the belief that the flavor and character of a food product is directly attributable to the climate, geography, and farming practices from which it sprung.

Each farm is unique so the combined effects of terroir take time to be revealed. Some parts of a farm are colder in spring. Some are weedier. Others, sandier. A farmer must understand the land, meet new challenges as they arise each year and develop a farming approach that builds resilience.

At Full Belly Farm, organic farming and soil building practices combine with the terroir of the Capay Valley to build deep flavor in their fruits and vegetables.
