PLACE AND PRACTICES
Jay and Jordan approach land together with a depth and breath of experience and the openness of eternal learning. Observation of what is present and generous in a landscape informs greatly the farming opportunities and land stewardship actions.
We stride the ecological breadth of the wild and the cultivated.
Our relationship to land involves both a farm system approach of soil building and small scale production alongside an ecological approach to land stewardship for biodiversity and resilient, adaptive and regenerative practices.
Our approach looks for opportunity in change.
Our practices have roots in permaculture, biodynamic farming, organic agriculture, horticulture, French Intensive systems, landscaping, restoration ecology and being outdoors... to name a few.
We draw from all these experiences to respond to our observations and create alongside the needs of place and purpose.
