What Produce Do We grow?
All of our root crops are heirloom and/or specialty varieties. We offer our customers the opportunity to try different types of potatoes, onions, shallots, leeks, and garlic they may not have heard of, much less tasted.
Why do we grow Them?
Short answer? Water. The farm has a very good well that provides clean, pure water, but there is no way to know how much water is there or how long it takes to recharge. We treat our water with respect, appreciation and don't take it for granted. We grow root crops commercially because they are the easiest to grow using drip tape irrigation.
How Do We grow Them?
Holistically! Enough books to fill a wall of shelves have been written on the subject, trust us we've read a few. Farming holistically is anything but simple. It's a matter of observation, balance, and intuition. Obviously using shortcuts will not accomplish that goal. For well over 40 years this land has never had chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides applied to it. We have made a decision to farm biodynamically and are implementing those disciplines and techniques in our work.
What does This Mean for You?
Another simple answer, it means you have access to the same produce we grow for ourselves. Our food is as safe, fresh, nutritious, and as tasty we can make it. There is nothing we offer to you that we don't eat ourselves.
