Moorpark, California

Apricot Lane Farms is an organic and biodynamic farm outside of Los Angeles offering avocados, lemons, 72 varieties of stone fruit, grass-fed lamb, beef and eggs.

The farm compound consists of a series of post-and-beam buildings enclosed with 100-year old reclaimed siding. The first in the series is the Vermicompost Barn, housing a 60’ long vermicompost worm bin.  The barn’s sister building is a two-story structure built for mixing biodynamic preparations, known as “tea”,  that is injected into the site’s irrigation system. The complex also includes an outdoor classroom and garden market gathering area.

Senior architect Buddy Williams is currently leading the team on a second tea barn and exploring adding housing to the site.
