About the Farm
Bertlesen Have is a Santa Barbara garden farm of Danish descent located near the Santa Barbara Natural History Museum. “Have” is Danish for farm. Nancy Bertlesen farms her yard with her husband who is a second generation Danish farmer. Their garden is no more than an acre in size, utilizing all natural methods. Crops are quite susceptible to drought, dictating the size and length of their harvest. Bertlesen Have is entirely farmers’ market based.

Main Crops
A backyard grower, Nancy brings an offering of seasonal avocadoes, lemons, and persimmons to market. Also a selection of fresh black mission figs, persimmons, rhubarb, as well as summer vegetables can also be found through the summer and fall months.
