About Us

ESTABLISHMENT The property was purchased in October of 1998 and has undergone a complete metamorphosis with the establishment of food production gardens and the implementation of wildlife habitat restoration. We keep mechanization to a minimum and use a walk behind lawn mower to mow walking paths only, a string trimmer to maintain garden beds and a rototiller to establish new garden beds or revitalize an existing one. SUSTAINABILITY Everything taken off the land is put back by use of composting. Grass clippings are effective mulch and greatly reduce the need for weeding while providing soil stability through temperature and moisture moderation. All plant material benefits from the use of mulch while adding organic matter back into the soil.

HABITAT GARDENS 1. Wildlife habitat restoration of grounds begun spring 2003, 2. Repopulating the land with Kentucky native plants to provide food and shelter for wildlife, 3. Allowing natives found naturally on the property to grow and expand their presence, 4. Provide a chemical free environment for wildlife.

PHILOSOPHY We believe in living closer to the land. Craig grew up farming and operated a 400-acre farm in western Minnesota until he was 27. We plan for a mix of native planting for beauty and wildlife support alongside the cultivated production gardens. We continually improve our soil by the addition of organic materials and minimum use of tillage equipment. Our only use of chemicals is for the control of invasive plants that were brought on to the property by previous owners. We attended an invasive seminar offered by the Boone County extension office in October of 2006 which provided indetification tools and proper cehmical control. We advocate organic gardening methods; however, we are not seeking organic certification. All weeding and mulching is done by hand in addition to harvesting, processing and packaging.
