Who We Are

Our History

When Farmscape started in 2008, our vision was to create gardens where food could travel a matter of feet from the backyard to the dinner plate. Since then, founders Dan Allen and Lara Hermanson, along with a team of experienced farmers, builders and designers, have built hundreds of organic, urban farms across California.

During that time, we’ve grown fresh produce for the best restaurants in California (n/naka, Providence), and tackled rooftop farms in downtown LA and the Bay Area (Jonathan Club, Levi’s Stadium). Our farms grow food in Silicon Valley campuses (PayPal, Samsung, Oracle, Adobe) and in agrihoods like Rancho Mission Viejo in Orange County. While the projects have grown in size, the fundamental goal has remained the same: connecting people to a fresh, local food source right in their own backyard. 

Our vision has also expanded beyond food to include low-water, sustainable landscaping as we have observed the impact of climate change and a limited water supply on farmers in California. 

Today, we offer design, installation, maintenance and programming services for projects to further our mission.
