Vegetables

We grow a wide variety of vegetables year-round, but availability depends on the season and the weather.

The best way to purchase our vegetables is to become a member of our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program, or visit us at one of the farmers markets we attend. (Please note we do not have a farm store that is open to the general public.)

Our Gardening Methods
We practice “deep organic” gardening by focusing heavily on creating and keeping healthy soil,  We shoot to create optimal conditions for plant growth by utilizing a large amount of compost in our mulch gardening techniques. When the plants have excellent conditions for growth, they generally don’t get attacked by bugs or struggle to produce.  We have generated an agricultural system for our farm encompassing both animals and plant agriculture.  Based on our knowledge and experience, we consider our methods to be regenerative organic agriculture; or, in other words we utilize intense soil-building techniques, reduced tillage, cover crops, crop rotation, and no pesticides or fungicides. 

Though we are not “certified organic” we follow all organic practices and really go above and beyond organic.  We just choose not to be certified, and would rather have a relationship with individuals who know us and visit the farm instead of a certification.
