Who We Are
Our farm was founded by several families to
preserve family farming and the beauty and exquisiteness of our
land. Organic farming has allowed us to create a livelihood for
ourselves and a source of nourishing food for us and our community.
Since our founding, we have raised almost 2 generations of children
In practical terms, organic farming is the
feeding of the soil and the plants by applying compost and using
green manure crops and the reliance on the network of interacting
beneficial plants and insects. Because our soil is so singularly
important to our tomatoes, we devote a lot of time and effort
to assure the fertility of the soil.
Our farming also relies upon the interaction
of the pest/predators relationships. Surrounded by native plant
habitat, we have a great variety of natural insect predators that
invisibly patrol our plantings while visiting some nectar producing
flowers along the way. We may also supplement these predators
with other beneficial insects as the season progresses.
Organic farming is a long term, long-sighted
process. As you bite into our fruit, you are savoring the rewards
of 20 years of care.
