Our farming philosophy is to develop a bustling ecosystem in our soils, where microbes can break down organic fertilizers and beneficial bugs protect our plants from pests.
To avoid disturbing soil habitats, we layer rather than till. We plant cover crops to provide new habitats, nutrients, and aeration. All of our fertilizers are naturally derived, as well as our pest and disease control – consisting of chicken manure, compost tea, and essential oils such as cinnamon.
Leaf & Soil Samples
Routine soil and leaf samples are sent for lab analysis to determine extactly which nutrients we are lacking. Each strain has its own unique nutrient needs, which is why we test leaf samples for every strain in our field, then design individual fertilizing regiments to fit the needs of each strain.
