More than 25 species of vegetables are cultivated at the farm, of which most are root vegetables since they tend to thrive in the sandy soils and unusual weather conditions of our foothills. The main vegetable varieties grown are carrots, specialty potatoes, onions, beets, garlic, shallots, parsnips, rutabagas, sunchokes, kohlrabi, squash, raddichios, kale, swiss chard and leeks..
All certified organic, our vegetables are free of any synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. Instead the fertilized used here comes from the animals, ranging from cow, chicken, donkey, and of course… pig!
We favour the presence of animals in our crop rotation, in order to reduce the need for off-farm fertilizer imports.
