All the produce we supply is grown organically on our farm and at our friends' place in Barrington, a certified organic farm growing predominantly medicinal herbs. Here some of our veggies and cereals are in a rotation with medicinal herbs, sheep and mixed species cover crops all supported by an on-contour(key-line), agro-forestry farm layout. It's absolutely stunning!
We're working on a bio-dynamic bases to support our veggie growing. Aiming for natural fertility building inspired by nature: Sequestering carbon by grazing mixed species pastures and cover-crops. Very regular (often daily) animal moves allowing for maximum soil building, after which we follow with our vegetable, potato and cereal crops.
The cereals and animals are part of the whole farm in a support function to allow us to work in an ever closer loop farm system.
Trees in an ago-forestry- savanna layout further aid in the development and maintenance of high carbon and fungal rich soils.
In increasing parts of the farm the cultivation and tree planting patterns are laid out on 'on-contour lines' (Keyline)
All to the benefit of our farm biodiversity and ultimately tasty and healthy vegetables.
Many other parts of our farm are developing into more and more sustainable and regenerating systems. The growing of our on farm vegetable seeds is for example an exciting growing part. Talk to us at the market or at a member day to share our excitement on 'all things organic, bio dynamic and regenerative'
In the mean time sign up for our veggie shares and follow the seasons throughout the year!
