Orson H. Alexander, a researcher from the University of Vermont, first introduced the Green Mountain potato as the answer to the US potato blight of the 1840s. The Green Mountain is a hardy, resistant, late-season variety with a crumbly flesh and sweet meat when baked. For nearly fifty years following its introduction, the Green Mountain potato was one of the most popular baking potatoes in the US. After World War II, however, the smooth-skinned and consistently oval Russet potato gradually won the heart of Americans. Today, only a few farmers and home gardeners grow this notable relic.
We have been here since 1978, never using any chemicals or commercial manures. We use no GMOS or hybrid seeds. We began biodynamics in 1990.
I am not Demeter certified. I grew up on a local farm and have gardened for 50 years. We are also Certified Naturally Grown, a grass roots alternative to USDA certification. We offer to the local public, seeds, plants, classes and occasionally produce from the gardens by appointment only. I grow most of our food and save our own seeds.
