Growing Practices

Our growing practices are tailored to the shape and specific resources of our land, balancing environmental health, sustainability, and the health and effectiveness of us, the workers. Check out the details below.

Hand Scale

Working at a human scale, producing food free from fuel or exhaust residues, avoiding equipment loans, and staying healthy

Healthy Soil

Mulching, cover cropping, adding compost, and minimizing tillage to foster a diverse soil community and healthy crops

Nourishing Food

Adding organic-approved minerals and other amendments, based on soil test results. Balancing soil minerals is integral in producing nutritious vegetables and fruit

Small Producer

We value transparency and our relationships with customers and the community. We aim to be a reliable seasonal addition to the region’s food web.
