We are a full-time diversified farm raising sustainable produce & herbs for CSA along with poultry, dairy & meat goats, swine, small grains, fruits, timber, and more for our own use. We consider ourselves a homestead farm, producing much of our own food (all meat, milk, eggs, & produce) and other resources year-round and minimizing off-farm purchases. Produce growing areas are managed using no-till methods with compost produced on-farm; we work hard to minimize off-farm inputs. We work hard to integrate the farm into the surrounding ecosystem, managing fields, pastures, and woodlands as a whole system.
We were certified organic from 2009-2013, but have dropped that certification due to cost and bureaucracy. Interested consumers should visit our website or contact us for more details on our farm management practices.
Our single-farm CSA offers a number of useful features for members, including limited share customization, home/work delivery (for an extra fee), diverse herb selection, specialty crops like mushrooms and strawberries, on-farm events, and more. Visit our website for more details on the program.
