In the Spring of 2016 we started our small farm just minutes from our cafe. The unique part about our farm is that it is located on 6 acres of wooded land. We have beautiful wildlife, a creek and a quaint farm house. Find out how to rent the farm house HERE.
All of our produce grown is not only organic, but heirloom. We are also growing a large variety of herbs and keep bees on the property.
We are happy to say that we are growing from only organic and heirloom seeds on the farm. As much as possible, we use the wood and plants from our surrounding woods for building structures, plant beds, seating, etc.
We also are growing a large variety of organic fruit trees and bushes, using permaculture methods.
Sacred Water Use
We collect rain water to supplement the watering of the farm by our filtered well. Water is a precious thing and we honor it by only using the water we need and watering in the morning or evening when possible.
Composting & Building Soil
We compost ALL of our kitchen scraps, which is A LOT! In fact, we did the math! We compost approximately 5,000 gallons of food each year. Because we deal with only plants and we juice (which creates veggie pulp) we have an abundance of plant material. This is GOLD which is composted at the farm to help build up our soil. The farming methods we use builds the soil and it’s nutrients, which means the produce grown on our land is also rich in nutrients! This is contrary to much of the farming that we have been accustomed to in the U.S. (and particularly the midwest), which often strips the land of its precious nutrients, minerals and microorganisms. Soil is life. We protect and honor it.
For the Community
Our intention for this farm, above growing produce and herbs, is to offer the opportunity for the community to tour the gardens and to offer classes on sustainable gardening and farming and beyond.
Farm Volunteer Opportunity
Our farm is surrounded by 6 acres of wooded land. If the idea of spending some time in the fresh air, moving your body, being close to nature, learning about sustainable organic farming and helping us serve the community vibrant food, this could be a perfect opportunity for you!
