Care of Earth
Our Hemp is Watered from
Our Pure Running Creek
We Harvest Our Own Worm Castings
Worm castings are an organic form of fertilizer produced from earthworms. Also known as vermicasting, when added to soil the casting aerates and improves soils overall structure while providing beneficial nutrients to our plants.
We Make Our own Compost Tea
We “brew” our own tea on site! Compost tea is used to introduce nutrients, fungal colonies, and beneficial bacteria to the soil and foliage of our hemp plants to aid its growth and protect it from harmful disease.
Free Range Chickens and Ducks
No, not for dinner! Though we do love their fresh eggs. Our chickens’ and ducks’ natural behaviors support the soil through scratching, pecking, hunting bugs, eating and manuring.
A Tribe of Goats
More than just adorable and sweet companions, our goats graze our acres lessening the need to use harmful herbicides. And when goats eat, you get goat manure! An excellent fertilizer,. it is rich in nitrogen and phosphate, making it perfect for growing plants.
We Source Locally
Whenever possible we shop locally, from feed for our animals, to parts for our machines. Sourcing locally reduces environmental impact by not creating large carbon footprints through overseas plane travel or long truck trips. This cuts down on fuel consumption and air pollution. Local sourcing can be beneficial to the environment, as it uses less transportation and consequently causes less carbon emission.
Growing Hemp in and of itself Cares for the Earth. Hemp breathes in Co2. It can help the fight against deforestation, regenerates the soil and prevents soil erosion, absorbs toxic metals, helps against pesticides, and promotes a Sustainable World!
