We also have 3 mobile hoophouses we use for winter production. We have a e-mail list for winter vegetable customers and we deliver to our customers in Madison and Huntsville in collaboration with 2 other Farms. Blanks Berry farm and Martling Farm. This way our customers can find good food during the winter and provide us with an income. We believe in bringing a little democracy into food accessibility and choice into the health of our bodies, land and communities. We should be able to make a living from the land without exploiting our resources, rather we should be regenerating them. We also offer internships on our farm.

Seed saving is very important to us for many reasons but on our road to sustainability we believe it is important for people to connect the dots in their food system from seed to fruit to ensure the future accessibility to clean, non GMO food. We honor those ancestors that spent their lives collecting, selecting and saving seeds that have managed to make it to the present day we owe our food diversity to them. We need to keep passing it on and enable local farmer to grow these tasty heirlooms.
