We grow over 100 varieties of mostly heirloom vegetables and fruits year round. We never use chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides of any kind. All of our soil fertility is provided by our animals through intense rotational grazing, cover cropping, and composting. We make and use hundreds of tons of compost each year. We rotate the sheep, pigs, cows through the gardens to eat the weeds and then follow with the chickens eat the bugs and weed seeds. This rotation along with the compost provides all the fertility the land needs to provide another beautiful crop.
We have fresh produce year round, including fall and winter, by growing under floating row covers and in unheated greenhouses. We produce over 50 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants, plus multiple varieties of squash, pumpkins, corn, melons, potatoes, okra, peanuts, herbs, cucumbers, peas, beans, onions, leeks, garlic, lettuce, arugula, spinach, kale, mustard greens, mizuna, tatsoi, cabbage, collards, and much more. We are always experimenting with new crops and new varieties to see what grows best and tastes best for our area.
