What's in and on your food?!
Everyone these days is concerned about GMO's, pesticides, herbicides, and rightly so!! It's a surprise to many people now that not that long ago ALL of our food was grown organically. That's right, every single bit of everything that went onto your plate and in your body in the not-too-distant past would have been organic and healthy, and you wouldn't have had to pay more for it, or go searching for it.
I could jump up on my soapbox and preach to you all the causes and consequences of our "new and better" agriculture culture, but I will skip that and head straight for the solution:
Heritage, heirloom, sustainable, simply put: back to the basics!
The basis of this is simply working WITH nature instead of against it. I've found that mother nature really knows her stuff, and even our 'good' intentions can have serious negative consequences. So the best thing for running a farm is to keep it simple!
That said, we are keen on working with the natural order of things around here when it comes to our produce.
We are NOT certified organic, and we never will be. How silly is it that we have to certify ourselves in order to say we do things without chemicals! Shouldn't it be the other way around? We choose not to because of many reasons, not the least of which is the cost, which we would then have to pass onto you - ever wonder why those organic veggies in the grocery store cost so much more? When a farm has to pay fees they end up recouping those costs by tacking them onto their products. We prefer to keep our prices low, and keep ourselves very transparent to you, our customer, not to some government stiff with a clipboard.
You will see listed on this page every product we use to grow our vegetables and herbs...don't worry, it's a REALLY short list! It starts with organic seeds and seed starting mix, a little organic fertilizer and some compost from right here on the farm, and if we do get some nasty pests or problems we've found that NEEM oil takes care of everything but is kind to the good bugs too
Really, it's that simple, because we know if you only put good in, you only get good out, and around here,"It's All Good". :)
Produce available beginning in late spring each year. We will have a list here of available produce during the growing season, available for pick-up or delivery. Delivery schedule will be posted here.

Why Raised Beds?
We choose to use raised beds as we've found them to be the best method for many wonderful reasons, to list a few of the major ones:
