The Wallace Family


Our founders, also siblings, Sim Wallace & Sarah Buncom laid the groundwork for what has evolved into a beautiful legacy.

Sim and Sarah were introduced to examples of entrepreneurship and ownership early on by their parents, Deartis and Theresa Wallace. Born in Texas and raised in Coachella Valley, they grew up loving rural living.


Our mission is to connect the broader community to immersive agricultural experiences while stewarding the earth. We are a natural hub fostering a healthy environment for education and innovation.

Our motto, Ujima: Collectively working to implement solutions that build and sustain Mother Earth for future generations.
