We mix our own potting mix, using organic fertilizer and beneficial fungi. Visit to learn more and fill your garden.

Tours describe our Certified Naturally Grown farming practices, including permanent raised beds on contour, cover crops, farm-scale composting, bio-intensive planting, organic soil management, mulch for weed-suppression and other weed management practices, pest management, and macro- and micro-nutrient management.
