Permaculture/

No-till Farming

Regenerative and sustainable, enhancing the land using traditional and reliable methods.

Permaculture is described as the development of agricultural ecosystems intended to be sustainable and self-sufficient. No-till farming increases organic matter retention and cycling of nutrients in the soil, while also decreasing erosion. Permanent cover crops such as clover are used in order to provide nitrogen fixation to crops, along with multiple other benefits. Organically grown straw used for mulch helps the soil retain moisture and increases beneficial microbe and mycorrhizal fungi activity towards the soil's surface where these activities are more concentrated. This combination of naturally increasing organic matter in the soil along with reducing erosion equals increased soil fertility and higher yields. A regenerative, sustainable, and productive way to farm the land for the short and long term. These methods actively contribute towards soil carbon restoration, which is necessary for our environment and ecosystem to thrive.

We use no synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, treated seed, chemical pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides, ever. We are committed to using growing methods that will enhance and preserve the land and environment for generations to come.

The farm land has a rich history having been organically farmed for the last 27 years, and protected from development by the Genesee Land Trust. For nearly three decades, Genesee Land Trust has worked to save natural lands in the greater Rochester area. Preserving land - over 5,000 acres - ensures that future generations may continue to enjoy the gift we inherited - an opportunity to have a relationship with nature, reaping all its benefits.

Message from the farmers

From our farm fields to your table we are building a connection between the land, the farmer, and your food. This direct relationship allows us the ability to provide a wide variety of freshly harvested fruit, vegetables, herbs, and flowers to our local community. We look forward to connecting with farm supporters and those interested in the opportunity to learn more about regenerative agriculture and permaculture no-till farming. When you choose to support our farm it helps to ensure that regenerative and sustainable farming practices will have a long future ahead, contributing to soil carbon restoration and enhancing our local environment and ecosystem.

What we grow

Heirloom & specialty varieties freshly harvested, from our farm to your kitchen.

We offer a wide selection of fruits, vegetables, and herbs that are full of history and flavor. We specialize in growing heirloom varieties because we appreciate their diversity along with their complex and delicious flavor profiles.

There are many varieties from around the world that we love to grow, pictured are a few of our favorites. By using regenerative  permaculture no-till methods, the flavors of our crops are of some of the highest quality that you can find locally. Everything is harvested with precise timing as to it's ripeness, in order to provide the freshest ingredients for your recipes. Our methods utilize growing practices used in organic farming, but go well beyond that into regenerative. We are actively restoring soil carbon by working with the environment in a positive way, by completely eliminating mechanical tilling and plowing which disturbs the soil food web along with the surrounding ecosystem both below and above the ground. We do the majority of our field work the good old fashioned way, with our hands.

Some of our favorite varieties to grow are from Thailand and Lebanon, as our family and cultural history are rooted in those countries. We have both grown up enjoying, eating, and cooking authentic Thai and Lebanese dishes passed down through generations in each of our families.

What we grow can be used in a diverse selection of original and traditional recipes from many cultures. We strive to have something for everyone, no matter what your personal taste preferences are. We always enjoy connecting with local chefs and the discerning home cook to offer you something unique and different that you many not be able to find elsewhere. If you are interested in special bulk or wholesale orders, contact us to see how we may be of service to you.

We love flowers & foliage

From flower gardening, bouquets & centerpiece arrangements, to indoor houseplant collections, care & consultation.

My mom has been growing and collecting plants since 1975, spanning over the last 43 years. Decades of growth and appreciation shared from mother to daughter, a legacy passed down so that it may continue to grow and expand for many years to come. Her ornamental garden and houseplant collection are full of diversity, just like mine, since I have been admiring and learning from her for a long time. We have both been avid plant collectors and growers for years.

 

We are excited to expand our selection and services to the community based around flowers and plants. Our focus is on creating outdoor production gardens that are full of biodiversity, and thriving indoor houseplant areas filled with plant life.

 

We offer diverse and beautiful seasonal flower arrangements along with a curated collection of houseplants, plus unique and original gifts.
