This is occupied Abenaki territory.  Many of the “organic” farming methods that we use are based on Indigenous knowledge from around the world. We are thankful to the Wabanaki and all Indigenous communities who have always stewarded and continue to steward land, ecosystems and knowledge. We recognize that agriculture is an instrument of ongoing colonial expansion, Indigenous erasure and displacement, and normalization of settler land claims.  We are committed to the daily practice of educating ourselves, dismantling the mythologies of white supremacy and settler colonialism, and learning how to act in solidarity with struggles for justice.

We manage about 25 acres of leased land, on which we rotate soil-building cover crops with 5-7 acres of mixed vegetables every year. The soils we farm are a combination of sandy loam and loamy sand – fine, delicate soils that grow excellent root crops and salad greens. We are just a few miles from the ocean, and the sea breeze helps keep crops healthy and disease-free. The woods, brooks and marsh that surround the farm provide natural habitat for beneficial insects and critters that support the cropland and share this space with us. We take seriously our responsibility to care for and replenish this fertile land for future generations.
