Welcome


Flying Plow Farm is a small-scale diversified farm. Key to our farming is the integration of vegetables, cattle, poultry, draft animals, pigs, and people to create a self-sustaining farm organism. Scroll down to learn more.

Truly Diverse

While growing great vegetables is the heart and soul of our farm it would not be possible without our animals.

Our pastured laying hens and meat chickens provide fertility for growing great grasses and clovers. These grasses and clovers go to feed our cattle and draft horses.

While our draft horses do a large majority of our vegetable field work they also provide manure for composting, as do our cattle.

This compost is turned and aerated by our pigs and then spread on our cover crops. Our cover crops grow for an entire season and then are tilled in, creating the perfect fertility for our vegetables.

We also pass along our knowledge through our apprenticeships in order to populate our community with more sustainable farms and farmers.

Our diversity is our strength and allows us to work towards a truly sustainable farm that produces local food for our region while caring for our land, vegetables, animals and community.

Vegetables


Our vegetables are grown without the use of synthetic herbicides, pesticides or fertilizers. Cover crops and compost are used to create a biologically active and healthy soil. Good growing conditions create healthy plants that are able to defend themselves against pests and disease, healthy plants in turn create healthy people.
