Bernier Farms

Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys


Bernier Farms is a small sustainable farm nestled north of Healdsburg, California with two sites: one in Dry Creek Valley and one in Alexander Valley. The farm specializes in garlic varietals for seed and market, and produces fruits and vegetables for local farmers’ markets and restaurants throughout the year. Its ongoing success can be attributed to the hard work and many talents of the entire farm family.

The Bernier family has several generations working together on a couple of properties in some magical places. In the middle of a sea of vineyards they grow garlic and strawberries and other good, wholesome foods, and pass along their hopes and dreams to young farmers from towns nearby. They have the sort of quiet honor we used to associate with farmers before industrialization confused a lot of things. We’re grateful for their efforts and always glad to see them at a farmers market, at their farm stand or in the field. Their generosity, with time and knowledge, is serious and elemental. We’re very lucky to have families like this in our midst.
