Frequently Asked Questions
What is No-till Farming?
No-till farming is a way of growing crops without disturbing the soil, allowing water, nutrients, organic matter and biological fertility to return to the soil. It also reduces carbon emissions by allowing the soil to stay undisturbed (as it's a carbon sink) as well as by not running large tractors that release greenhouse gasses.
What is an "heirloom" vegetable?
Heirloom varieties are old cultivars of fruits and vegetables that are open pollilnated and handed down/ saved for generations and not genetically modified.
What is Sustainable farming/agriculture?
Our farming methods ensure that we grow the richest, cleanest, high quality produce. We do that by omitting any chemical fertilizer or pesticide, which makes our produce clean. We are sustainable because we are growing locally, offering our produce for our community, thus cutting down on transportation. We are meeting our community’s current needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs with practices such as conservation tillage, hand harvesting, and responsible water usage. Regenerative farming includes the practice of crop-rotation, composting, improving soil health by reducing tillage, soil erosion and carbon loss.
Is your produce organic?
Our farming practices go beyond organic. We pride ourselves on growing clean, sustainable, regenerative produce, free from use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and other artificial agents. We are currently in the process of becoming Certified Organic; however, we will always continue to farm beyond organic for nutrient-dense, color-rich, diverse produce.
What is CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It stems from the practice of members of a farms community purchasing a share of a farms output for a given season in advance and receive a portion of the crops as they are harvested.
