In addition to growing our own main ingredients, we have implemented an environmental farm/habitat enhancement plan designed to create a living tapestry of the individual components within the property, including soil capabilities, wetlands, farm buildings and forested lands and creeks: all aspects of the farm that influence and interact with each other.
Our plan will also allow old creeks on the farm to become fish-bearing once again and, by reestablishing ancient oxbows and wetlands, we hope to encourage the return of natural species and migratory waterfowl.
We do not plow or cultivate the soils. Instead, we use a heavy-duty grain seeder that cuts through the previous year’s stubble, opening up the ground with a round disc and allowing new seed to be dropped in the soil and then covered for germination.
We over-seed harvested fields with winter wheat, rye or winter peas to increase the organic matter in the soil and rebuild the soil naturally. This action also benefits the many visiting waterfowl who overwinter on the farm, and minimizes the potential of soil erosion during winter rains. On some fields, we also apply a heavy spring application of compost or manure.
