Foster Farm Botanicals

Annie Christopher & Peter Backman

“We take great pride in producing the highest quality botanicals possible on this historic family land and sharing them with MegaFood and their customers.”

Foster Farm is owned and run by artist, chef and herbalist Annie Christopher, and her husband Peter Backman, co-founders and former owners of Annie’s Naturals salad dressings and condiments company. The farm has been in Peter’s family since 1823, operating mostly as a subsistence farm. Peter grew up here and always wanted to return to continue the family legacy as stewards of the land.

The visionary couple took over the reigns in 2014 and, together with Operations Manager and experienced vegetable farmer Benjamin Uris, transformed the fertile soil into a model for regenerative agriculture. Today, their small but mighty farm team grows, harvests, dries, mills and packages more than 35 certified organic botanicals, including red clover, nettle, burdock and motherwort found in MegaFood supplements!
