Who We Are

Edible Ojai & Ventura County is a local foods magazine that is published four times a year, with the change of seasons. Since its founding in 2002, we have witnessed some major changes in the food community of Ventura County and across North America. It is through the ongoing, collective efforts of many people that we have achieved such success and for that, we are grateful to each of them. A special note of thanks goes to: our local family farmers, artisan food producers, chefs, market owners, restaurateurs, contributors, subscribers, readers and advertisers. You’re the greatest!

The goal of this magazine and website is to be a resource that makes eating, growing and enjoying our local abundance an everyday pleasure.

Edible Ojai & Ventura County serves an agriculturally rich area within California’s CentralCoast region. Both magazine and website act as our contribution to the growing movement throughout this country that is encouraging people to eat more locally grown and locally produced foods. By eating locally, we help sustain the small family farms that grow these foods, we enjoy food that is fresher and healthier for us, and we help reduce the cost on the environment (and in dollars) of transporting foods over long distances.

Edible Ojai & Ventura County is a member of Edible Communities, Inc. a network of more than 80 award-winning local foods magazines in distinct culinary regions across the US and Canada. For more information, visit www.ediblecommunities.com.
