HARVEST / FIELD CREW
Winter Green Farm
We collectively manage 171 acres. About 25 acres are devoted to mixed vegetables and berries for our CSA, farmers’ markets and wholesale accounts. About 90 acres is dedicated to sheep and cattle for pasture, hay, and balage. The remaining acres are oak groves, riparian areas, and wetlands for wildlife habitat.
We embrace biodynamic farming methods, and view our farm as a living organism. This means we strive to create a healthy farm ecosystem. The vast majority of our fertility is produced on-farm. We view this as one sign of a farm in biological balance. The backbone of our fertility program is farm-made, well-ripened compost, green manure crops, careful crop rotation, and pasturage of our grazing stock. We feel the health of our farm is reflected in the quality of our crops.
Growing great food and making it available to all people, is one of our core values. We have developed a close link with our local food bank. Through the combined effort from our labor and donations from the community, we provide thousands of pounds of produce to those in need. We also seek to pay our workers a living wage while creating a work atmosphere of mutual respect, learning, and community at our farm.
