Spring is Here!
We've been busy bees on the farm over the last few weeks! Check out some of our latest projects:
to accommodate all of our annual and perennial seedlings, for transplantings on the farm and for nursery sales.
East Orchard Seeding--
Spring is a great time for seeding poor soil that needs a boost!! We seeded a cover crop blend of legumes, grains, and daikon radish into our east orchard rows.
We then over-seeded with a wildflower blend. Cover cropping like this has many benefits:
1. The cover crop helps improve the soil while suppressing weeds.
2. The legumes fix nitrogen from the atmosphere and supply it to the soil where other plants can use it. 3. The daikon radish helps to breakup and aerate our heavy clay soil here in the Front Range.
4. When the cover crop dies off the wildflower meadow gets the benefit of extra organic matter being added to the soil from the decaying plant material. Yay for stacking functions!!
Vegetable Garden Seeding--
We're looking forward to our 2020 Farm Stand season! Be on the lookout for our first round of cold hardy crops: arugula, radish, Asian greens, and spring greens!!
All this, and more, will be sold at our roadside farm stand on Jay Road in the coming months. Can’t wait to share the abundance with you!
We invite volunteers to help us at the orchard. Beginners level of experience in farming or gardening is okay— we will teach you every step of the way.
By volunteering, you will trade your work in the orchard for an exceptional hands-on learning experience; you not only get the chance to learn from seasoned farmers, gardeners and local herbalists, you also get the benefit of access to farm fresh food, cut flowers and herbal medicine we’ll be growing this year.
Permaculture & Biodynamics Explained
Permaculture, or “permanent agriculture,” is a model of design for a perennial and sustainable agricultural system created by Bill Mollison in 1978. The main focus is to create a living landscape in which ecosystem regeneration and the use of natural resources are balanced through utilizing on-site renewable resources to recycle waste, fertilize the soil and increase biodiversity.

In 1924, Rudolf Steiner introduced his concept of “biological dynamic” agriculture practices. The “biological” practices include known organic growing techniques, along with a specific regime of field sprays and fermented composts, known as preparations, used to activate the soil and re-enliven its microbiome.
Additionally, the purpose of these preparations are to influence the vital life force of the farm metaphysically through a “dynamic” interaction between the celestial and the earth. Tasks such as planting, weeding, harvesting and applications of field sprays are all set to a calendar correlated with celestial influences, such as the placement of the sun, moon and stellar constellations.
