Our main crop is heirloom tomatoes, but we also grow a variety of other seasonal produce as well. We also have a variety of fruit and nut trees that further enhance our seasonal output. In 2014, we grew over 2,000 pounds of tomatoes. In 2015, we hope to exceed that number. Our goal is to provide fresh seasonal produce to our community without the use of harmful herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers.|

We do not use hormones or antibiotics on our animals. We do not apply herbicides, pesticides or petroleum based fertilizers to our pastures. We cut our own hay off our pastures for winter feeding.
Our cows live happy lives and fatten up on grass, not grain. This makes for healthy cows and tasty, tender and healthy beef.
