Beyond Organic

Our produce is typically distributed within twenty-four hours of harvesting to ensure freshness and high nutritional density.
We grow approximately forty varities of vegetables availble at particular times from April through October. We also carry pastured chickens and eggs throughout the year. 
We grow food without any chemical fertilizers or pesticides. We practice no tilliage in the soil to encourage optimum balance of biological activity. We use very limmited power equipment and tools. We incorporate indigeneous plant species to attract beneficial insects and encourage ecological diversity. We use livestock for compost production and garden management. And we hve an open-door policy. You are welcome to visit any time!
