Leisen’s Bridgeway Farm–  The Leisen family has been farming in Sonoma County since 1870 when Dr. Corrie Leisen’s great-grandfather (a friend of Luther Burbank) purchased land in the Bellevue district of Santa Rosa. Leisen’s Bridgeway Farms began in 1986 when Corrie and his wife Janet,  found an Arabian horse ranch along the banks of Mark West Creek and purchased it as their family home. After retiring from their dental practice, the Leisens decided to devote their time to the challenge of raising vegetables and fruits for local sale. They specialize in heirloom tomatoes and specialty/heirloom melons in the summer and kale and winter square in fall and winter. Their produce is Certified Naturally Grown. Visit Leisen’s Bridgeway Farm at the W. E. F. M.- you’ll sample fruit, learn about their heirloom produce and walk away with delicious food from their farm for your table.
