Our passion is sustainability for ourselves and our community. To give back to the land that provides for us, as we are all connected to the earth and if you don't take care of it, it can't take care of us.  Regenerative and restorative agriculture is our direction, with the planting of perennial crops, land management and building soil. Food has always been very important to us; where it comes from, how it is grown and how it affects the land it is grown on.

We are excited to be on this new journey and have you be a part of it. We look forward to the challenges and rewards it will bring, and the lessons we will be learning on this path. We know we are heading in the right direction and there is no place we would rather be. Come join us.
