After purchasing Carlmont Nursery in 1962 with his personal inventory of more than 8,000 plants as collateral, owner Bob Tyler tripled the facility's physical size and has since established the nursery as one of the Bay Area’s premier sources for japanese maple and bamboo. Fast-forward to the present and Tyler's Carlmont Nursery has become a peaceful oasis filled with an extensive selection of flora, gardening supplies, and decorative items, crisscrossed by gravel paths that meander past a waterfall and along a winding creek. Customers benefit from garden consultations and design services, and the nursery’s skilled technicians can install plants, lighting, and hardscapes to enhance the beauty of home gardens. Nursery emissaries can also put in water features to imitate babbling brooks or gargling humans.

In 1976, two UC Davis graduate students bought 20 acres of land in the highly arable Capay Valley. One of the students, Kathleen Barsotti, was working toward her master's degree in ecology and was determined to grow vegetables and fruits in an eco-friendly way: organically. The organic-food movement hadn't yet entered the public consciousness, and Kathleen worked overtime to convince restaurants, stores, and consumers of the taste-able merits of her process. Over time, given the possible health and environmental benefits of certified organic food, she succeeded. The farm sprouted to 300 acres to accommodate the increased demand. Today, a second generation runs the farm as well as a shop inside San Francisco's Ferry Building. Dubbed Farm Fresh To You, the store furnishes customers' bags or portable cornucopia horns with all sorts of soil-sprouted goods, including heirloom tomatoes, sweet peas, and fresh asparagus. The farm also teams up with fellow Yolo County and Pacific Northwest farms to deliver boxes of seasonal produce to area homes.
