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 .
Many of the herbs we cultivate are perennials, which greatly reduces our tillage and helps to build soil microbiology. We take soil tests regularly in order to accurately address deficiencies and imbalances, and constantly turn under a variety of cover crops and mulches to maintain and increase soil organic matter. The majority of our fertility comes from cover crops and compost. We mechanically cultivate with precision tractor-mounted implements to control weeds and grow all of our own seedlings on-site in four automated greenhouses. We installed a herb milling facility in 2016, where all of our botanicals are processed on-site. We currently cultivate approximately 30 acres of herbs, with another 30 acres in soil building cover crops.
