Our own garlic is sustainably grown.
Sustainability is a principle by which farmers use sound farming practices to meet their needs in the present, while consciously sustaining and preserving resources for future generations. Sustainability encompasses three areas:

  • Land and natural resource stewardship
  • Plant and animal production practices
  • Community and farm integration

 

Land and Natural Resources:

The sustainable farmer uses water resources wisely to maintain water quality and minimize polllution. The sustainable farmer plans for wildlife by protecting a variety of habitats. The sustainable farmer preserves and improves the soil by using good tillage practices, cover crops, and mulch. On farm resources are used as much as possible, and imported resources as little as possible.

 

Plant and Animal Production Practices:

The sustainable farmer believes in "healthy soil, healthy plants, and healthy animals". Soils are alive and must be nurtured and fed to sustain us now and in the future. Animal and green manures, cover crops, compost, tillage, and crop diversification are necessary for healthy soil and therefore, healthy crops. Natural and renewable and local inputs are used as much as possible.

 

Integration of Farm and Community:

The sustainable farm contributes to the community in many ways, including:

  • Fair labor practices; including equal opportunities, fair wages, and good working conditions
  • Purchasing supplies locally
  • Providing quality foods and other pruducts to members of the cummunity
