we keep growing
2012 is our 8th season growing organic veggies, flowers and herbs here in southern Vermont. Each year has been a learning experience. As as we build our soils and our business we continue to gain appreciation for the delicate balances in nature and the complex role we play. In the process we continue to strive for agricultural practices to fit our scale and our principles. Click here for an approximate calendar of produce availability.
We use soil blocks instead of conventional horticultural plastic pots in our greenhouse. The crop is seeded in one block and then "potted on" into consecutively larger soil blocks. Beyond the ecological benefits of avoiding plastic, soil blocks also provide the ultimate growing environment, the plants never get rootbound.
We love colorful food, and we don't just mean M&M's.
If anyone finds a shovel on the side of route 7 it is ours.
Amazing graffiti cauliflower. Real purple food!
Rainbow heirloom peppers, charentais melons and husk cherries, a few of our wackier crops.
Oliver is tillin' like a villain.
No cucumber beetles here! We use a lot of row cover on the farm, it keeps the bugs out and gives a few degrees of frost protection in order to extend the season.
