Our Story

Good Land Organics is an exotic fruit and coffee farm overlooking the Pacific Ocean from the foothills of Santa Barbara, California. Our certified organic farm employs a layered agriculture system that utilizes crop diversity and maximizes the potential of our hilly terrain-one of the many ways we practice sustainable growing and resilient agriculture. 

Good Land Organics was founded by Jay Ruskey in 1992. Together with his wife, Kristen, their children Sean, Aiden and Kasurina, and (grand)parents Jack and Nicole, the Ruskey Family built more than just a farm.  Good Land Organics is a pioneer grower of rare and exotic fruit in California, and a leader in the evolution of California as a coffee growing region. 

What started as a coffee program at Good Land Organics in 2012 became Frinj Coffee, INC. in 2018. The name is a nod to our ability to grow coffee on the fringe of traditional producing regions. Today, Good Land Organics is the heart, headquarters and flagship farm of Frinj Coffee
