What we Grow

What’s Growing on our Farm

Summer 2014 

This year has been an adventure in experimental growing.  The only thing we are growing for sale right now isn’t even in the garden – its in a jar.  And its a Kombucha SCOBY!
We are excited to announce that we will be launching our Kombucha beverage soon, around mid-September.  However, we will be moving into a commercial facility and off the farm.
