Spoons and cooking utensils are hand carved by axe and knife. Material is collected from local tree services or our property.
Microgreens are grown in soil under the protection of an enclosed glass greenhouse. They are harvested the morning of market and are some of the most nutritious foods that you can eat.
Flowers are grown amongst the vegetables and share the natural chemical and spray free environment of our gardens.
Chickens serve multiple purposes on the farm. Aside from the obvious daily egg, the chickens create valuable compost from organic food scraps and garden waste.
Woodenware products are created in small batches and commissioned orders of any size are happily accepted.
Perennial flowers are an important part of the farm as we are building towards a more permaculture based system of growing. Flowers are planted on the farm for cutting, beauty and of course attracting pollinators.
Our berry production is small in scale currently, but we are planting and propagating constantly in order to be able to provide blueberry, raspberry, elderberry, haskap, currant, gooseberry and aronia to customers in the near future.
Carving tools are quite simple and themselves made in small batches from talented makers from here in the US and around the world. We use very limited power in the shop.
Our goats serve stacking functions at the farm. For now, the young goats are fertilizing different areas and clearing invasive plants. In the future, they will provide us with milk, which we will use for different products for market.
Produce is grown without the use of any chemicals or sprays of any kind (even organic). We are a Certified Naturally Grown farm, which follows organic growing principles in every aspect.
Many of our crops serve several purposes. We can use some plants for food, beauty and craft. Hope Red Dye amaranth is a great example, as it can be used for grain, cut flower bouquets and fiber dye.
Woodenware is finished naturally with pure, heat treated walnut oil blended with organic beeswax.
Sculptural bowls are hand carved from a log and can be made in different shapes and sizes. Most bowls are painted with milk paint and coated with walnut oil.
Our gardens follow “no-till” growing principles. We use organic material on the property to build soil. We believe that tilling is destructive to soil structure and bringing compost in from other sources in not sustainable.
Stewardship of our property is something that we can great pride in and we continue to plant for beauty, environment and habitat.
Wooden products are created directly from log. Trees are never removed for craft work and rather are harvested after storms mostly or from tree service removals.
