The Spain Farm is a fourth generation small farm tucked away between the woods and urban growth in Raleigh, North Carolina. We are innovatively trying to take dominion over the land by using stewardship techniques to preserve the land for the next generation. Our philosophy is to work together with the animals and the food we grow; instead of trying to artificially stimulate them, we make them our partners in this business in a sense.
Our specialty is shiitake mushrooms. Grown in the woods on logs, our mushrooms are sheltered under the shade, using the most natural fertilizer available, fresh water. We are currently putting into place the paddock system to use with our animals which will allow each animal to participate in the polyculture we are creating by contributing their own kind of fertilizer and cleaning up after each other.
