Eat Fresh. Buy Local. Let’s grow together!


FARMS OF AMADOR is a countywide non-profit networking, educational, and marketing organization in the foothills of California’s Sierra Nevada.

We develop and coordinate youth-oriented and public agricultural programs for Amador County, promote awareness of our county’s agricultural assets, and support the Amador Farmers Market Association.


Our Mission:

We aim to create consumer appreciation of the importance of locally grown and purchased agricultural products, encourage Amador’s youth towards agricultural involvement, promote agritourism, and increase profitability and production for our farmers and ranchers. We are committed to building community and sustaining and supporting open space and the rural qualities of Amador County.


Let’s Grow Together.

  • Support the Amador Farmers Markets
  • Host farm tours for local school children.
  • Sponsor agricultural education programs in our public schools.
