Elizabeth & Paul Kaiser

Farmers Paul and Elizabeth Kaiser have operated Singing Frogs Farm in Sebastopol, California since 2007. With a background in tropical agroforestry, natural resources management and public health in the Sahel of West Africa, Central America and Northern California, they had fresh insights into farming and as such developed Singing Frogs Farm’s innovative model. Their farm is multi-award winning for their highly intensive, no-till, ecological management system. They have increased their soil organic matter by over 400%, while drastically reducing their water use. Singing Frogs Farm has demonstrated that ecological sustainability can mean economic sustainability, with up to 10 times the sales per acre compared to similar farms. Recently, Paul and Elizabeth have focused on teaching their model of successful small-scale, regenerative, no-till vegetable production locally and abroad.
