Farm Description

We are a family owned farm and we take a very responsible approach to the way we raise our crops. We fertilize our soil with a combination of green manure cover crops, leaf mulch, compost animal manures, fertilizer and lime. We take great care of our soil and maintain high levels of organic matter to ensure excellent plant growth in a responsible and sustainable manner (we are also Certified Organic). We also follow principles of sustainable agriculture which promotes environmentally sound farming practices to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations. In addition to our farm market, PYO, family fun activities, we also offer a 30 week CSA with full, half, and personal share memberships.
