Our 200 acre farm is situated at 1300’ in north central Vermont. The highly mineralized upland soils we cultivate have been improved by generations of dairy farmers who had great reverence for this land. We strive to continually increase the productivity of our land while simultaneously producing botanicals of the highest quality which are best suited to our bioregion.
Many of the herbs we cultivate are perennials, which greatly reduces our tillage and helps to build soil microbiology. We take soils tests regularly in order to accurately address deficiencies, and constantly turn under cover crops to maintain and increase soil organic matter. The majority of our fertility comes from cover crops and compost. We mechanically cultivate with tractors to control weeds and grow all of our own herb transplants here on the farm. Our fields are kept very clean and we strive to always reduce the weed seed bank in our soils.
