How do you prepare your products for market?
Where do we begin….. Growing produce requires a lot of planning!

It’s all starts with your soil health, and we are super passionate about ensuring we are giving our produce the best start in their journey. We use ALOT of chicken Manure- We age it on our property for as long as we can.

Then we plan our crop up to 8 months out from harvesting followed by lots and lots of planting/seeding and maintaining our produce with weeding and crop management.

Then the fun begins with picking our tasty produce for our beloved markets.
