Marney Blair, along with her partner, Lisa Bjorn, created Fulcrum Farm over 15 years ago. Aside from food, the farm also produces Biodynamic compost for sale to local farmers and gardeners. They sell over 300 yards a year. Prior to her work on the farm, Marney managed a large-scale biodynamic composting operation in San Francisco's Presidio. The facility created compost for habitat restoration projects and provided a growing medium for all of the plants in the native plant nursery.
