our Values

Make a difference

Sustainability
We cultivate our vineyards and gardens with deep consideration for the earth beneath us. We are 100% wind-powered, we compost all of our farm waste, and we use either compostable or recyclable packaging.
Biodiversity
We cultivate a diverse selection of heirloom crops, sourcing our seeds from small family farms. We are dedicated to growing crops that are well-adapted to our site and showcase the beautiful diversity of nature.
Culture
Our work goes well beyond the field. In the face of industrial agriculture, we aim to strengthen our local food systems which are the heartbeat of communities. We aim not only to produce nourishing food, but to also act as a beacon of education & progressive development.
Community
Supporting local agriculture circulates money within the community and provides a stable alternative to external food distribution systems. We also offer classes, online publications, and events intent on creating a sustainable future for our rural economy.
