Description

As concerned land stewards, we strive to implement the most sound practices to enhance soil, air, water and our wildlife resources while providing you with a variety of high quality, healthy food. Most of our operations are done by hand, with a small tractor used for cultivation. We enhance soil fertility by applying composted animal manure and by systematically rotating produce crops with cover crops every year. This process helps to restore essential soil nutrients while also providing beneficial habit for honeybees and other insects. The farm is is home to many swallows, bluebirds and bats that provide good biological control of insects. We grow unique vegetables such as boc choy, chard, sweet and storage onions and rhubarb. Unique fruits include melons.
