Permaculture and Sustainable Methods
We use a raised garden bed system designed like a French potager! It is a kitchen garden, that is symmetrical in design and is a beautiful and productive garden to cook your meals from. This is how we garden:
Using lots of organic matter such as branches and small logs to build up our raised beds. Over time they decompose and feed the vegetables.
Using all parts of the farm to feed and nourish it. Ex: the goats eat the weeds, their manure feeds the garden which feeds the goats.
We incorporate nasturtiums, calendula, chamomile, and other flowers both for the bees and for cooking!
It’s not easy, but we find natural ways to deal with pests and we grow a lot so that it’s okay if the insects get some too.
The Secret of Success
Growing a wide variety of vegetables, from winter kale to summer eggplant, we hope to share our passion for plant-based eating with you!
Out of compassion for our farm animals, we eat a plant based diet here on the farm.
Our garden gets all of our kitchen food scraps as well as aged manure.
