Our mission is simple: to love and respect the 23 acres we call home and grow good food. Maintaining healthy soils is the key to producing nutritious fruits and vegetables, so we farm using agricultural practices that support the natural biological and chemical processes of soil. These include crop rotations, so as not to deplete nutrients, planting green "manures" which are then tilled in to the soil to enrich it, and adding animal manures, in plentiful supply in our neck of the woods, to again boost the soil.
" Whether we and our politicians know it or not, Nature is party to all our deals and decisions, and she has more votes, a longer memory, and a sterner sense of justice than we do."
We are all too aware of how our country's agricultural system has failed us. We are committed to playing our part in reversing the damage that has been done by bringing you wholesome, nutritious produce, the way our ancestors did it!
