We try to make sure that during the course of each year 50% of the square footage of our growing area is holding soil-building crops.
That seems like a lot, but it is very important to actively and consciously build your soil and grow crops for your soil's health.
Part of the art of gardening organically is soil building.
We believe that the only way to produce healthy and nutritious food is to produce it organically and sustainably. It is in organic food production where the human race will find true health and well-being.
We are very proud that we have been Certified Organic through NOFA-NY Certified Organic, LLC Program for almost 15 years - from 2005 until 2019. Although we have decided to officially retire from certification, we still will continue an avidly "beyond organic" approach to every thing we produce. At this point, we also practice a "beyond sustainable" approach as we feel that the world is calling for us to regenerate and restore rather than just stick to sustaining ...
We want everyone to feel empowered and able to produce their own organic food. We are actively working to provide a variety of options on this site for incorporating organic gardening into gardens, homesteads, farms, and lives. We offer a variety of workshops and courses, spring plant and seedling sales, and lots of information, videos, and articles.
Biodynamics has often been described as step above and beyond organic practices ... it is actually a bit more than that! Read our view on Biodynamics and how we incorporate Biodynamics into our Farm.
We do a series of plant sales that match up with the growing season and planting out each year.
We have a huge variety (over 400 types) of vegetable seedlings, over 300 different herb varieties, and an ever changing selection of perennials, natives, ferns, and annuals
We offer a wide range of courses on both a beginner level and on advanced and specialized levels.

We wouldn't grow organically without being able to make use of herbs in the garden.
Herbs are effective and useful for making our food delicious, our bodies healthy, and our garden productive.
