Below are ways we work to minimize our impact on the earth and improve the quality of the products we bring to market.
We use the sun to off-set our energy costs. The solar panels on the property collect energy to be returned back into the power grid.
Our largest greenhouse is heated during the shoulder seasons with a wood furnace. We use dead wood collected from our 200-acre property to fuel this furnace. This way, we can sustainably heat our greenhouse while also improving the health of our woodlands.
These structures trap heat from the sun and allow us to provide protection from the cold for certain crops like tomatoes and delicate flowers. In a climate like ours where the growing season can be abrupt, our high tunnels help us grow for a greater part of the year, which results in more locally grown produce for our markets.
