Located in historic Liberty Corner, we are a small farming operation specializing in 100% organic herbs, hay, straw and vegetables and non-certified lamb and cut flowers. While we do not operate a retail operation, our products are sold locally through such markets as the English Farm.
We started our farm in 1995 as a small operation raising sheep and growing herbs on an old chicken farm that closed operations in the 1960s. After many years of working on the infrastructure, while busy at our day jobs, we finally have in place the barns, greenhouse and high tunnels to help our operation run smoothly .... relatively. Throughout this transition process we made sure to only use organically approved practices and products in preparation for our long term goal to become USDA certified organic. The certification occurred the first year we applied in 2013 as we earned the status for organic crops. Since then we have maintained our certification each year with the current update shown here for 100% organic herbs, hay, straw and vegetables.
Our operating philosophy is simply to protect the land while producing a quality product. To this end we have followed the goals of sustainable agriculture:
meet the need for food, enhance environmental quality and the natural resource base upon which the agricultural economy depends, make the most efficient use of non-renewable resources and on-farm resources and integrate, where appropriate, natural biological cycles and controls.
In addition to these obvious goals, sustainable agriculture promotes the need to maintain the economic viability of farm operations and enhance the quality of life for farmers and society as a whole. Additional detailed information on sustainable agriculture is given in the Education section of our site. Over time we have integrated our processes to enhance the soil, minimize use of water, eliminate waste and add value to manure, to name a few. See our sustainable cycle for more details.
