We are blessed to live in a beautiful area with a diverse and healthy ecological system. We are committed to sustaining the environment for future generations and to increasing awareness in our community and beyond as to the importance of doing so.. We demonstrate this by our commitment to organic agricultural practices - we are a certified organic farm and use organic practicers in raising our blueberry crops.
We are committed, energy efficiency and demonstrate this by the use of alternative energy sources like geothermal heat and air-conditioning for our home, recycled water, composting, and crop rotation.
We are committed to education of our community and our guests as to the importance of protecting our environment. Our goal is to have our guests be more knowledgeable about the environment and options for sustainable living, and to leave us with a few ideas as to how to incorporate more sustainable practices into their urban lives, and to support farms who do so.
We live in a small rural community and are committed to supporting our local businesses, including restaurants, shops, antique stores, and outdoor activities. We encourage our guests to frequent these businesses, and provide maps and directions to them. In addition, we work together with our fellow farmers in finding new opportunities to sell our produce and products and are committed to our community' sustainable future.
We are active participants in local discussions regarding sustainability, and participate in Franklin Local, a group specifically set forth to promote sustainable practices and awareness in our community.
We employ local workers for harvesting, field maintenance, construction, fence repair and other services. We are growing our farm business, and this in turn provides additional jobs for the region.
We practice gleaning - at the end of each harvest season, a portion of our crop is set aside of local charities and food banks.
