The next harvest dinner will be on July 25th, at 6:30p.m.
Consumers and farmers deserve to have access to an open record of the farming inputs and outputs that go into producing the food they consume. Through transparent record-keeping farmers and consumers begin to 'connect the dots' between the delicious food on our dinner tables and the living soil, watersheds, and wildlife within which good food is a part.
Rather Grow Your Own Fruit and Vegetables, but need some help getting started, or maintaining it? We can help with your home garden design, preparation, and maintenance for fresh-picking year-round on your land. We will grade, terrace, till, test-soil, spread rock lime, and plant using methods requiring the least maintanence for you. We can provide you with the varieties of fruit and nut trees, berries, vines, and vegetables best-suited for your land. We can even maintain it so that you can simply enjoy picking it when you want it! We believe that everyone should have the experience of picking fresh produce on your own land any season. The old-timers did it and now we can do it using improved varieties and organic methods. 706-265-5502
