We grow all of our CSA crops, using a system of sustainable agriculture called ‘no dig’ or ‘no till’, and secession planting. This allows us to grow a lot of food in a very small space. No dig means we are constantly feeding the soil, adding compost, leaving roots of plants after harvest, and disturbing the soil as little as possible to help maintain the health of the rhizosphere, or system of microorganisms in the soil.
Our view on organic: Becoming a certified organic grower is a lengthy process. We grow almost entirely organic seeds, sourced from the northeast, and do not treat our plants, pasture or animals with any pesticides or herbicides. We strive to leave things to the complex ecosystem and microclimate we have on our farm. In most cases, our practices exceed the guidelines for organic growers.
Everything we do, we do with the health of our planet, ourselves and our animals as our greatest goal.
