Natural Grower practicing Sustainable Agriculture:
We are ‘sunlight harvesters’ - our primary
production (herbs, flowers, greens), is based on the
conversion of sunlight energy into food. As gardeners
we learned that ‘soil was everything’,
and as market farmers, we know that the most important
element in harvesting this sunlight is ensuring that
our soils are cared for and built up in a long-term
sustainable manner. The first principle is ‘feed
the soil and let the soil feed the plant’.
We are a family-owned farm where everything
is raised in full accord to nature, in an environmentally
friendly way. We do not use chemical pesticides or
herbicides of any kind, and use only certified organic
fertilizer or composted manure. Our chickens are raised
without antibiotics, hormones or inoculants of any
kind, and fed only grass and certified organic grain.
