Pamela Mason and Steven Rehn established Cole Canyon Farm in 2000 in Aromas, California. Cole Canyon is primarily an organic nursery starting vegetable and herb seedlings for the home gardener. They use organic and heirloom seeds when available and hybrids that are proven in our local gardens. For gardeners with limited space, Cole Canyon Farm offers selections that do well in containers and pre-planted Patio Bowls of herbs including their Tiny Thyme Bowl, Mint Medley and Herbes de Provence.

The plants you find on their market table are ready to go into the garden whatever the season; strawberries in winter, vigorous greens in early spring, tomatoes and peppers in summer, and hardy vegetables, garlic and onions for autumn planting.
