Here's what we've got available so far:
asparagus is grown in raised beds on the property. Instead of chemical fertilizers or pesticides, we employ lasagna gardening methods (also called sheet or mulch gardening). Because we utilize hay, cardboard, fresh compost, organic manure from our chickens, and other biodynamic agriculture methods, our asparagus is free of all chemicals, totally organic, and completely delicious.
Organic Looseleaf Lettuce
$1.50/bunch or $6/6 oz.
aquaponic setup. Utilizing fish waste to fertilize and nourish our plants, this lettuce is raised in a gravel bed and gets its sun-like rays from a grow light hovering overhead. Because it grows inside, the leaves are never exposed to harsh elements or winds; making for the tenderest lettuce you're likely to ever taste.
This is the fourth season for our chives, which make a great addition to any recipe. Add fresh to salads, stocks, stir-fries, bakes, or marinades; or dry it out for months of use in your favorite dishes. Our chives are grown alongside the asparagus in raised mulch-garden beds.
Free-Range Eggs From Happy Hens
Scarlet, Bernadette, Delores, Destiny's Child, the Rapunzels, and all the Barred Rock ladies enjoy fresh grass, organic leftovers, and yummy feed (not to mention endless pounds of all the centipedes, spiders, ticks, mosquitoes, bees, and worms they can find!) all day long as they have free range of Better Farm's entire property. These hens are spoiled to the Nth degree; and it shows in their amazing eggs. Variety of colors (brown, pale blue/green, and white) available.
Stay tuned as more and more crops come to bloom!
