Living On The Farm

We love plants! Every day we are immersed in plant life, from planting seeds, transplanting seedlings, tending field and nursery crops, to harvesting and processing our bounty. Living so closely in tune with plant cycles and energies is one of the most lovely ways to spend time. Plants have so much to teach us, about sustainability in particular. Plants are "autotrophs" meaning they feed themselves. What a brilliant evolution, to harvest sunlight and make food! 


We strive to live our lives within the limits of natural laws and cycles. We seek to leave the land in better shape than we found it, building the inherent capacity of the soil with cover crops and good management techniques. 

Our farm is off-grid, powered by the sun, like the plants! We have an old spring that gives us water and the creek running alongside the farm feeds the pond that waters our greenhouse and fields. We live in one of the most beautiful valleys in western NC and are so grateful to pursue such a rewarding path as farming, rhythmically following the seasons.
