After moving to Hawley we began our search for land within our geographic community. Franklin County has a rich agricultural history. We soon found that many of the fields in our immediate area still provide essential space for feed production for area dairy farms. During the 2011 growing season we fine-tuned intensive crop production methods in the Eliot Coleman style of organic farming. We feel that this is the method that best suits our ideals for soil improvement and also provides a high yield of food per acre. Our goal is to stay as small scale as possible while reaching as many families in our community as we can. We want to teach others about the importance of and joys found within growing food.
