Our farming principles

These things we hold dear:

  • Soil is alive and we should promote that life with the use of compost, cover crops, and timely tillage.
  • Soil is alive and we should protect it by not using harmful, synthetic chemicals to kill weeds, to kill pests, or to fertilize.
  • Soil is the foundation of our farm, having a healthy soil will produce healthy vegetables, grass and hay. These in turn produce healthy farmers, horses and livestock.

In an effort to reduce off-farm inputs and to reduce waste we have made a commitment to not use plastic mulch on our vegetable crops.

What about our organic certification?

Flying Plow is a certified organic farm. This means our farmland in its entirety is certified organic, along with our vegetables, meat chickens, and laying hens.
