  • Description

    Description

    Our garlic farm was a startup organic farm in 2014 growing varieties of garlic. This is our core operations, we also have fruit orchard and vegetable gardens that one day will see us near self-sufficient. Planting more than 100 fruit trees in 2019 is also planned.

    We are mainly vegan / vegetarian with raw foods often playing a major part in the diet.

    Farm animals include chickens, sheep mainly for weed control and manure.

    Organic Certification with NASAA was completed in late 2016.
