Growing Practices

Growing practices at Broadfork utilize ecological methods: compost and cover crops are used to feed the soil that feeds our plants. Raised beds are used to allow close-spacing of plants and to prevent soil-compaction, allowing for happier plant roots! We use organic potting soil and fertilizer, as well as things like fish emulsion and earthworm castings. No chemical fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or pesticides are ever used on your food and we are Certified Naturally Grown (which follows the same national standards used for Organic Certification).

We are also proud members of the Virginia Association for Biological Farming, Virginia’s state-wide sustainable agriculture organization. (If you care about local, organic food, please join and support the VABF!)
