About Us
Our small farm is tucked away in the south-east corner of our island. We produce all the berries and orchard fruit for our jams here on the farm. Same with the vegetables for our picking. In years when certain things don't want to grow, we try our best to source locally and from organic producers.
We often are asked "what about the kiwis", yes, we grow them too; an arctic variety that produces lots of small kiwis the size of a grape.
Citrus fruit of course, is purchased in stores.
Practices
We are a small scale producer and are not organic certified. We tried it once but for our amount of production, the cost for certification was too high to make a profit. Since we are well familiar with organic practices, we follow them, e.g. no use of pesticides or herbicide and only organic matter for fertilization.
After a Saturday at the market, I usually spend a couple of hours in the field weeding and find it very relaxing.
