We Do:

🌱 Sow nitrogen fixing cover crop to build soil health naturally and lower our fertility inputs.

🌱 Apply exclusively OMRI Listed® sources of fertility and compost.

🌱 Start all our seeds from scratch with certified organic potting soil from Vermont Compost Company.

🌱 Buy certified organic seeds when available.

🌱 Use beneficial soil bacteria & other biological allies to control pest + disease pressure.

🌱 Minimize tillage and mechanical soil disturbance.

We Don’t:

❌ Use synthetic and petroleum-based pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, or fertilizers.

🌼 Though we are not yet certified organic, we plan to certify within our first three years in operation. We follow organic management standards and are building the necessary records and systems that the certification requires.🌼

plant + soil health

annual soil tests help us grow healthy, nutrient-dense food in soil that is nutritionally balanced and biologically active. 

we use organic, slow-release sources of nutrition to feed our soil and the plants we grow. 

we take time to understand the complexities of soil chemistry to allow us to make choices that will yield nutrient-dense food and enhance the ability of our soils to support life at all scales.

cover crop

rather than leave land fallow after a crop is harvested, we plant cover crop.

we use a mix of nitrogen fixing legumes + grasses with deep root systems which support soil microbiology, build the soil’s capacity to sequester atmospheric carbon, and provide habitat for beneficial insects + pollinators.


we believe that a healthy ecology is the only foundation for building truly sustainable food systems. 

we make choices that honor our indebtedness to these larger systems by attending to the health of the whole farm. 

some ways that we do this are: reserving wildlife habitat, restoring hedgerows, removing legacy hazards (barbed wire, plastic), propagating native trees and flowers, and protecting our natural springs.

We are always learning more about the complexities of soil, plant and human health. 

Here are some of our most recommended resources.
