About the farm:
Our small-scale herb farm in the beautiful Schoharie county in upstate NY uses organic growing methods without the use of artificial fertilizers or pesticides. We apply sustainable methods to build and improve our soil. Our earth sheltered solar greenhouse is used to grow herb seedlings in the spring and dry our harvest during the summer month without the use of fossil fuel. Our solar operated and pond fed irrigation system does not require any electricity. Our herbs are grown in self fertilizing raised Huegelkultur permaculture beds. We took the NOFA farmer pledge to commit to the principles and practices of organic farming.
