Our growing practices are centered around respecting and building healthy soil. This means we disturb our soil as little as possible, keep our soil covered, and plant densely. Through these practices, we minimize water consumption, effectively control weeds, and create a healthy habitat for critical soil organisms.
We build soil fertility rather than fertilize plants. Our compost heaps are the heart of this process. Here, the carbon and nitrogen-rich organic matter from our farm undergoes nature’s decomposition process, turning ingredients like grass clippings, leaves, wood chips, and animal manure into a fertile habitat for plant roots. Plants grown in this way are healthy, happy, and naturally resistant to pests and diseases.
