CECEILIA'S GARDENS FARM STAND

Highway 1 & Tennessee Valley Road, Mill Valley, CA

Open year round, our farm stand is a reminder of a different time. We work closely with farmers and producers in order to offer quality, healthy, Local Products. We seek out the highest quality  Seasonal Produce we can find to stock our farm stand, as well as to use in our array of Preserves. Our mission is to offer a healthy product and be environmentally and socially responsible. We aim to do this while keeping up high standards of quality and taste. We believe in supporting our local economies and communities. To that end, we buy our produce directly from  Small Local Farmers who grow their crops sustainably with minimal impact on wildlife and the environment. We believe that by providing healthy and delicious food in a way that supports local communities, the local economy, and the environment, we can contribute to a more balanced and healthy world.

Since it started in 1982 by Michael and Ceceilia Rickett, Ceceilia's Gardens has been a family run business and has been an integral part of the community. In the spring of 2010 Josh (their son) took over the business with a new vision after spending time in Hawaii. Committed to quality, the environment, and supporting the local community, he sells only good tasting, organic (or no spray) produce sourced from small local farms. Inspired by his love of good food and a desire to preserve the flavors of the season, he began to make jam and pickles. Since then he has perfected his craft and makes delicious pickles, jam, preserves, fruit butters, and kimchi.

FARM PRESERVES

CECEILIA'S CELLAR

Using the absolute best seasonal produce from local farms, we craft high quality gourmet preserves. We are invested in the beautiful tradition of preserving the harvest: calling forth the essence of the of flavor of fruit or vegetables we use in our array of products. By preserving local produce when it is abundant, we are able to make it possible for you to enjoy local food year-round.


Blackberry Jam in Copper PotJAM
FRUIT BUTTERS: <br> Our Fruit Butters are oven-roasted, creamy, spiced fall treats.<br> They are made with fresh seasonal fruit and are low in sugar (do not contain any actually butter).<br>Apple Butter<br>Cardamom Persimmon Butter<br>Good Food Award Winner: Curried Pumpkin Butter (available seasonally)FRUIT BUTTERS
MARMALADE:<br> An old world favorite, usually comprised of two parts: one part jelly and one part citrus peel.<br> Our marmalade is made using fresh fruit without pectin and takes two days to make.<br> The long cooking time gives it a very full bodied flavor. <br>Blood-Orange Raspberry Marmalade<br>Dry-Farmed Tomato Marmalade<br>Strawberry Kumquat<br>Valencia Orange MarmaladeMARMALADE
FRUIT PRESERVES:<br>Using perfectly ripe fruit preserved in simple syrup, these are a classic throwback to simpler times.<br> Summertime harvest perfectly captured in a jar making a delicious winter treat.<br> Guaranteed to be delicious: Make into a pie, eat with vanilla ice cream, or have straight out of the jar. <br> Lavender Preserved Nectaplums<br>Preserved Pluots<br>Rose Preserved Peaches<br>vanilla Preserved ApricotsFRUIT PRESERVES
PICKLES:<br>We use produce picked on the same day that we make it into pickles, insuring the crunchiest,<br> freshest pickles available on the market. Loaded with fresh herbs and whole spices, we craft unique <br>spice mixtures to bring out the best flavor of the vegetables we pickle. Handmade in small batches, <br>our pickles are crunchy, salty and flavored unlike any pickle you can find in the grocery store.<br>Garlic Dill Cucumber Pickles<br>Spicy Cardamom Cucumber Pickles (Good Food Award Winner)<br>Bread and Butter Cucumber Pickles<br>Early Spring Pickle Mix<br>Summer Dill Pickle Mix<br>Harvest Pickle Mix<br>Dilly Beans<br> Cajun Pickled Okra<br> Heirloom Pickled Beets<br>Pickled JalapeƱos <br>PICKLES
KIMCHI:<br>Kimchi is a Korean style low salt Sauerkraut. It ferments in half <br>the time and therefore is less sour than Sauerkraut. Our more modern take on Kimchi <br>is more accessible than traditional kimchi and is very versatile. It is crunchy, spicy, sour, savory,<br> salty and sweet (with no added sugar). We infuse new and unusual flavors; something for every palate.  <br>Beef Bone Broth Kimchi<br>Beet Carrot Kimchi<br>Green Papaya Thai Kimchi<br>Meyer Lemon Kimchi<br>Peach Daikon Kimchi<br>Persimmon KimchiKIMCHI
SALSA: <br>Oven-roasted smokey rich flavored salsa. <br>We use freshly picked tomatoes and tomatillos. They are picked and made into salsa within one day.<br> The tomatoes are farmed using a technique called dry farming which intensifies<br> the sweet flavor of the tomato on the vine. <br>We are the only salsa on the market that uses fresh tomatoes (not out of can). Chef's Favorite. <br>Fire Roasted Dry Farmed Tomato Salsa<br>Tomatillo and Green Chili SalsaSALSA
SAUERKRAUT:<br>An Eastern European favorite with a California twist.<br> A very fresh tasting, low-salt, flavorful Sauerkraut. Probiotic. Perfect on sandwiches and BBQ.<br>Cucumber JalapeƱo SauerkrautSAUERKRAUT

"I have spent much time talking with Josh, and he with me. I feel we have discovered an unknown GEM! We now do all our produce and fruit shopping there FIRST, as well as all the wonderful pickled and fermented delicacies and jams, etc. Josh is so open and willing to talk all about the products and processes to make these handmade foods, that my wife and I are HOOKED! FYI: I am from a farm and my folks from Kentucky. My Grandmother ALWAYS canned, pickled, and cooked, and gardened. This is a lost art, and I (we) fully support and encourage it! Thank you so much!"
