People out in the field hoeing, and cultivating by hand along with tractor driven units getting rid of weeds and making room for our produce to grow and flourish.
Parts of the field in cover crop. Cover crops are used as a means of giving to the soil what our produce has used. The legumes fix nitrogen from the air and bring it back the soil. Healthier soil means healthier plants, healthier plants means less need for pest control. When pest do come into the picture we use natural soaps and oils for pest control.
Compost and manure being spread on the field is yet a another way we give back to the soil.
Chickens scathing the ground eating herbs, grasses, and bugs is one of the greatest things to watch. Pasture rotation is extremely important to both the animal and the land. We leave our livestock in one place just long enough to take what they need and leave behind thiel gift to the soil. We supplement what they eat on pasture with locally grown grains.
The field never looks the same from one year to the next, as a result of crop rotations, and allows for maximum use of soil nutrients. Different crops use different nutrients and are also at risk of different disease cycles. This rotation allows for two to three years of production before the soil is rested in pasture.
Our goal is to help you prepare delicious and nutritious meals for you and your loved ones. The nearly 30 varieties of fresh cut and flavorful herbs and more than 100 different hand picked vegetables are key in keeping all of us happy and healthy.

We raise our chickens with their natural tendencies in mind. The laying birds spend their time loafing in sunny green pastures with free access to grass, bugs, and lots of room to run. Our broiler chickens live in floorless pens, that are moved daily, with access to plenty of grass and bugs. This makes for beautiful golden yolks and flavorful chickens for Sunday supper.
