We use no synthetic or artificial fertilizers or pesticides. All of our produce is grown in soil fertilized with aged compost and green manure crops on permanent beds. This means that tilling is done only once to establish the beds and then never again, protecting the soil from erosion and evaporation of vital nutrients. Almost all of our plants are started by seed on the farm, either in the field or greenhouse. Furthermore, for the past three years we've been taking soil samples and have begun remineralizing the soil, using only organic sources of minerals, to be sure the crops have a high level of nutrients and the soil is mineral-rich. With these production practices, we strive to give you the best food possible and to replenish the land for future generations. Healthy plants make for a healthy environment and delicious, nutritious food..
