Good Life Farm

Good Life Farm is a small yet hopefully effective foil against that ever-encroaching sprawl, which now presses in on all sides of our 40 acres.

We have been farming this land since 1995, although we only ramped up production for direct-to-the-public sale in the spring of 2008. Over that time, my wife Laura and I along with our three children have better learned the ins and outs of growing reliable, great-tasting crops.

And Good Life Farm is certainly an ideal place to do that, thanks to our unique soil: unlike surrounding farms, whose land is largely a mixture of sand and hard, red clay, we plant our crops in soil upon which chestnut trees once grew in great abundance. As the chestnuts fell to the earth each autumn, the land was richly fertilized with carbon, nitrogen, and minerals. By the time those trees died off, in the early 20th century, a rich loam was left beneath them.

It is in this soil that each year we plant a changing variety of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. That mix always includes the reliable local favorites: sweet corn, tomatoes, watermelons, and cucumbers, for example. But I also like to experiment with entirely new crops or new varieties of the popular standbys. I pore over seed catalogs and talk to peers in my search for crops that may grow well in this environment. I'll sometimes even accommodate a regular client by planting seeds he or she has brought home from afar.
