We grow non-certified organic vegetables, run a small goat dairy, keep bees, and care for a teeny herd of cattle and one horse, named Puck. (You guessed it, we love good compost!) We've been passionate caretakers of this land since 2014 and firmly believe in regenerative farming.
Our cheese and veggies are delicious, nutrient rich, and thoughtfully produced. Healthy-happy soil and animals are a win-win all around -- flavorful, nutritious food for us and a prospering, dynamic ecosystem for all living things, present and future. "If you do not try to make food delicious, you will find that nature has made it so," wrote Masanobu Fukuoka. And, we agree!
