We intentionally grow herbs, flowers and companion plants to attract pollinators and other beneficial insects. We grow specific plants to aid in our beekeeping efforts and specific plants to help with the hop yard. We deliberately let some of these crops go to flower and go to seed.
We have been very fortunate to begin with excellent soil. However, we recognize that every crop we plant continues to "mine" the soil for nutrients.
To sustain this growing philosophy, we believe that we have to give back more than we take. We are committed to planting cover crops, adding organic amendments, rotating crops, and dedicating a ¼ of our cultivated space to green manure every season.
Soil is the foundation of our farm. Dirt First!
