St. Johns Lutheran Mission Farm

St. Johns Lutheran Mission Farm

What We Do:

We grow fresh fruits and vegetables for distribution through the CANV Food Bank to help families struggling to put nutritious meals on their tables. While there has always been a need for this in Napa county, it became especially critical during the COVID-19 crisis and continues through the recovery.

We farm three acres of land adjacent to the church. We have 70 fruit trees and room for both summer and cool-weather row crops. This past year, we expanded our efforts and turned over 21,000 lbs. of fresh produce to the Food Bank for distribution to families in need. In addition, we worked with school and youth organizations to acquaint young people with the miracle of seedtime and harvest. We are an all-volunteer organization which means that all your donations go directly to producing food for people’s tables.

Other Ways to Help:

Volunteer opportunities:

  • Help one day a week with planting, harvesting
  • Help on call basis for “work parties” during busy season
  • Talk us up to your friends

Donations needed:

  • Gardening tools
  • Gas cards
  • Gift cards for Walmart, Home Depot


The Mission Farm is a dozen active, motivated, knowledgeable individuals. Their weekly commitments help supply the CANV Pantry. Joining them as volunteers, Young Farmers and Ranchers have learned a lot about raising crops and themselves.
