Today, the Silicon Valley is the center of the technology universe; but it wasn't long ago that apricots were this area's claim to fame. 

Deer Hollow Farm is a 160 year-old living celebration of our agricultural history in the Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve.  

Our mission is to provide environmental education to the Bay Area. We host over 100K visitors annually, free of charge.  This year, over 5,000 elementary school children will visit the Farm on educational field trips to have a hands-on experience with science, agriculture, and history.


Friends of Deer Hollow Farm is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Our mission is to support the farm's operations and maintenance via fundraising and PR.

Your SVGives donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $13,000!


Our $13,000 matching grant is a rare opportunity to DOUBLE the impact of your gift. This grant is made possible by the Henrikson Family Foundation and the Merrimac Fund.

In 2015 (our first SVGives), your support pushed us to 7th place out of 305 Small Non-Profits.  This year, we hope to do even better! 


Our field trips from Bay Area elementary schools often represent an opportunity for a child to see a cow or goat in real life, for the first time. Our replica Ohlone Indian Village is an immersive, one-of-a-kind setting for school kids to learn about Native American history.  

Your support will help Deer Hollow Farm continue to be a valuable resource for our community.
