Methods

Our market garden uses French-Intensive methods to grow 4 acres of food on 1.5 acres.  Our methods are labor intensive which allows us to grow for flavor rather than efficiency.  We use organic methods that promote good soil health and natural pest control.  For example, we use insectonet covering over our greens to replace pesticides.   We use raised beds of compost that’s biologically active and beneficial.   After the harvest we plant cover crops, green manure, to replenish the soil.
