We grow on a small scale with just over 1/4 acre in cultivation and grow using non-GMO seed and regenerative practices, including cover cropping, crop rotations, minimal tillage, building soil through addition of organic matter, encouraging biodiversity, and use of certified organic inputs.

In the past, we have grown produce for a vibrant CSA program and local farmers markets.

For 2020, we are transitioning to cut flower production for floral designers and market, while we plan for permanent farmland in the near future.
