We are a holistic, ecological farm that focuses on regenerating soil health. Our belief is that if the soil is healthy, then our plants will be healthy and produce better tasting vegetables. Working with nature is our goal and we try to create beneficial ecosystems on the farm that are more sustainable and better for the environment.
A huge part of regenerative farming is keeping the soil structure intact to help increase biodiversity in the soil. Once the soil is disturbed, it messes with the ecosystem of the soil food web that we are trying to promote. To minimize soil disturbance and reduce our carbon footprint, we avoid tillage as much as possible. We do not use a tractor and are primarily human powered.
At our farm, we never use any synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. These can have adverse effects on the environment, the ecosystem of the farm, and our health so we avoid them at all costs. Promoting beneficial ecosystems on the farm is a much more holistic way to increase fertility and decrease pests.
