Valley Heart Ranch:
Kirsten and Darrell Becker
Nestled between the mountains and the sea, Valley Heart Ranch is owned and operated by Kirsten & Darrell Becker and carries a long legacy of farming in Santa Barbara, California.
Agriculture operations at the ranch began in the 1920’s with citrus and evolved into a commercial floriculture nursery until 2016 when the unparalleled terroir began its transformation into a certified organic coffee farm. With its unique coastal setting offering cool mornings and warm afternoons, VHR is one the few organic coffee producers in California and the only coffee grower in Montecito.
The heart-shaped valley now boasts several varietals of in-ground lush coffee scattered over five acres of loam soil terraces. With their shared vision now in full operation and a back-to-basics approach to farming, Kirsten and Darrell are thrilled to offer this exquisite product grown with technical expertise and lots of heart.
