Building a Regional Fabric
One Thread At a Time
Chico Flax is piloting regenerative agriculture production and processing systems for fiber flax in our region, bringing a new industry and social enterprise to Northern California in collaboration with local community members, farmers, artisans and institutions.
We are leveraging partnerships and opportunities built over the past 13 years to further develop a regenerative and economically viable fiber flax production pilot projects in Northern California.
- We document our soil and ecosystem changes resulting from regenerative agriculture production methods.
- Engage more members of our regional farming community in demonstration and field days
- Test the viability of newly designed small-scale mechanical processing equipment.
- Develop new prototype fiber products (flax/cotton and flax/wool yarn blends) with regional processing and farming partners.
