• Build living soil. Civilisation depends upon six inches of healthy topsoil for its survival. Our primary aim is to create soil that teems with micro-organisms and fungi, that will in turn feed the plants that sustain us and our customers. Healthy soils = healthy plants = healthy people = healthy communities.
  • Use water wisely. Plants need moisture for survival (even desert plants get some water), but our aim is to deliver water to where it's needed as efficiently as possible by using water saving irrigation equipment and techniques, and by building soil rich in organic matter.
  • Treat the farm as a complete organism. We practice techniques that regenerate and enhance the land, leaving it in better health than when we took stewardship of it.
  • Grow mostly heirloom plant varieties. Unlike hybrids, heirlooms are owned in common by all of humanity. The best way to preserve this common resource is to grow heirloom plants in what is essentially a living seed bank.
  • Pick and store produce for maximum freshness. We'll do this by using smart harvesting techniques, and by getting produce to our customers as soon after harvest as possible.
  • Make farming decisions holistically, considering the "triple bottom line" - ecological, social and financial. 
  • Minimise or eliminate waste. We aim run a closed loop system as much as possible, and will turn "waste" into a valuable resource through composting, recycling and other means.
  • Build direct relationships with our customers. We value a short supply chain, aiming to first feed our neighbours before sending produce further afield. 
  • Practice transparency in our farming operations. Customers are welcome to visit the farm for a first hand look at how we produce food, and a "no closed doors" policy applies.
