Is "Organic" What You Think? But do you know what organic truly means? Did you know that two different organic farms can follow very different practices and still be certified organic? Did you know an organic farm can still spray copper chemicals on its produce?
The opportunity to witness agriculture in action is a rarity nowadays. To experience where our food is grown rather than to watch it arrive at supermarkets is the point of our farm tours.
Our farmers are happy to work with you to design a farm tour that fits into your group's focus, whether it be watersheds, livestock, vegetable production, health or holistic management.
We are happy to share our farm with you in a way that meets the interest of your group. Sample group tour focuses are below to give you an idea of what a farm experience can offer :
Local food production and distribution, with an emphasis on seasonality, what crops grow when, and how we distribute them.
Composting and its role in food production.
How it all works Our farm's history, how we got started, greenhouse and hoop house production, and a behind-the-scenes look at how the crops are grown.
Certified Organic Agriculture The emphasis of this tour highlights the methods used on a certified organic farm, including topics like crop rotations, integrated pest management and fertility.
