We follow organic growing standards and practice minimal tillage.
Soil, compost and soil amendments are OMRI approved and organic.
When organic seed is available, that is what we select.
Our pest control is done mostly by hand, barrier netting,
non-herbicidal soaps and trap cropping. We work with
nature instead of against it in order to be successful.
We grow on under a half acre of land in the lovely, small town of Nelson, NH.
We believe small farms across the globe help build strong,
resilient communities. Community is what drives us to do what we do.
We grow what we need and donate what we don't.
We are a small-scale farm that does most everything by way of hand tools and our bodies. We are moving toward being completely no-till.
Using a broad fork, rakes, shovels, and a tilther, we disrupt the ecosystem of the soil as little as possible.
We follow organic practices, buy organic seeds whenever available, use Vermont Compost for our seed starting and organic amendments for soil health.
We started experimenting with opening up new fields using tarps without tilling. We cover crop our fields in the winter and in between uses.
For pest control, we use our hands, insect netting, trap cropping, beneficial insects, and companion planting. We use coyote urine and radios to deter deer.
We even have a few barn cats in the neighborhood that help with mouse and vole control.
We believe in allowing nature to balance itself out, assisting when needed.
Our practices provide us with abundance, healthy soil, thriving wildlife, nutritious food and happy customers.
