Silveira Farms is a small organic farm operated by David and Michelle Silveira. The farm began in 2005 and is located in Merced California. We produce organic hay for a local organic dairy and vegetables that are direct marketed. Our chickens are raised on grass pasture that produce eggs that are superior in nutrition and taste.

David’s love for farming began on the Azores islands where he learned to farm with his father. He then returned to the U.S. and studied agriculture at Cal Poly SLO. After graduating he worked in agriculture until we started our farm. http://www.ranchopiccolo.com
