Jim Terrick has his grandfather to blame for his love of farming. The elder Mr. Terrick farmed grains, wine grapes and vegetables near Riverside. Jim began his own adventure in farming in 1980 in Orange County and sold his vegetables at the Torrance Farmers’ Market. It was there he discovered his love of organic farming. In 2006 he moved to Los Osos where he continued his passion for organic farming of strawberries, lettuce greens, onions, carrots and nearly 80 more crops throughout the year at the Los Osos Valley Organic Farm. Besides the SLO Farmers’ Market, the farm sells wholesale, resale and at other farmers’ markets. Jim feels that just as important as his produce, however, are the wonderful people who volunteer to work on his farm.
