Long Beach Farms is an urban farm with a mission of creating a more secure, local, sustainable food model. We aim to increase access to affordable, healthy food. Long Beach Farms' physical farming operation is comprised of small, dedicated farm sites in the north end of the City. By combining the produce we grow on our smaller, urban farm sites with our larger, cooperative farm locations outside the city, LBF is seeking to strengthen the quality and infrastructure of our local food economy. Long Beach Farms harvests our fruits and vegetables at their peak ripeness and nutritional level, and offers our customers access to the highest quality free-range eggs, local honey, and other artisan products.
Demitrius is a Long Beach resident and a local food advocate committed to bringing the finest sustainably grown food into our community.

Demitrius has a professional background in urban planning, design and education from Cornell University and the University of Southern California. Demitrius spends his free time learning about bugs and new dancing moves with his rambunctious nine-year-old daughter.
