Who we are…

Her Story




The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Lao Tzu.

And so it was for Seabreeze Family Farm.  Since a child, I had loved being outdoors – rising before dawn, horseback rides, tending my Grandmother’s farm animals in southern Texas, holding the magical seed packages of flowers and vegetables and the promise of their bounty.  And then ‘real’ life began: college and two advanced degrees, teaching high school for San Diego Unified School district, becoming a gold broker and then CEO of my futures trading companies (with an office in the World Trade Center).  I bought the coastal land where Seabreeze is now in 1978 with hardly any other houses around, covered with chaparral and groves of old eucalyptus trees.  In 1988, I assessed my life style and goals and decided on a radical departure from the ‘norm’, starting the journey, seed by seed, brick by brick to what now has become a personal source of joy, health and nutrition for family and clients, and a haven for animals.

I do so hope you’ll be able to garner the essence of Seabreeze from our website.  We continue to face political and economic issues that challenge the stability of our goals yet we continue to feel confident our farm holds the promise of betterment for all.

Your patronage and support insures many years of continuance for which we are all most grateful.  We are a 100% private enterprise.

We are exactly who we say we are…Read more here
