We have started a multi-functional closed loop farm: so we can produce everything we need for our activity within the farm itself.

We grow biodynamic vegetables, a method of farming that encourages a view of each biodynamic farm as an integrated, whole, living organism, and recommends growing vegetables in season.

We are very mindful of life cycles: for each work in our vegetable garden, we follow the phases of the moon. A practice that farmers have been using for centuries in agriculture to grow genuine vegetables.
