Sustainable Soil Practices

Alluvial, clay loam soil is one of our greatest assets. We embrace biodynamic principals but not going to the extreme, including composting, bringing in animals, and incorporating the lunar calendar. We are excited by the resulting success in diversity, rich soil and abundance of earthworms.

Organic Beekeeping

We work closely with ecologically sustainable specialists to expand our farming techniques that help foster a living, breathing ecosystem.

Controlling weeds organically requires patient innovation. We avoid the use of synthetic and biological herbicides and focus instead on natural alternatives. In creating a sustainable, biodiverse environment, we have learned to accept a landscape that is imperfect because of small, well-managed weeds.
