We are a relatively small farm of 3 acres, 2 years in business and growing and learning rapidly. We grow a wide range of vegetables, keep chickens and have one beehive. Our farm takes a holistic approach to horticulture integrating healthy soils and biodiversity into a commercial enterprise. We believe that healthy soils and eco-systems grow healthy crops that can withstand pests and disease. Currently we are using a tractor and various bits of machinery however plan to switch to minimal-dig methods over the next 2 years. This year we are researching soil micro-biology, compost management and no dig approaches as well as exploring some aspects of biodynamics. We are planning to begin our long term compost plan this year. We are a very family oriented farm, with two young children, wwoofers, part time employees and family popping in and out. WE are still working on farm infrastructure and our third polytunnel has yet to be built and we are finishing the packing shed. We are in organic conversion.
