Farming is an avenue through which we can practice ecological conservation and regeneration. This means building the physical, biological, and chemical health of our soil through cover cropping, crop rotations, low impact tillage, and basic mineral soil amendments.
We love seeing ladybugs, praying mantises, bees, and wasps do their thing and we do our part in making sure they have a safe environment. By working without synthetic fertilizers, sprays, or pesticides and using techniques that work in conjunction with nature, we aim to improve soil health and ecosystem diversity. As a vocation, farming takes skill, knowledge, dedication, patience, humour, and humility. We believe that the talented people who work with us in our endeavour deserve a fair wage, positive work environment, skills training, and great respect.
We want to have a workplace where our family (furry and non-furry, big and small) can run around, dig in the dirt, splash in puddles, sing in the rain, and discover the world of plants and animals. We want our little girl to know that women can and do farm, drive tractors, build things, lift things, crunch numbers, love science, take charge. We want life to be joyful, full of curiousity and wonder, and engaged.
