Robert Lichtenberg, Director of Purchasing for Earl’s Organic Produce on The SF Market is retiring after a career spanning almost 50 years. Robert was trained in French intensive organic farming methods at the Santa Barbara Institute of Bio-Intensive Agriculture in Santa Barbara by a student of Alan Chadwick in the early 1970’s. He went on to farm organically in the Sierra foothills for 10 years. From 1986 – 1997 he worked at Star Route Farm as Warren Weber’s farm manager and later as sales manager, farming in Bolinas and Thermal, California. Star Route was growing specialty crops for San Francisco restaurants and retail organic markets during the emergence of California cuisine. In 1997 he joined Earl’s Organic Produce as a buyer and ultimately Director of Purchasing. Robert’s long-standing commitment to the organic farming community will continue in his retirement. He will be greatly missed by growers, the organic community and his co-workers.
