Mulching with wood chips

We do not use any herbicides here on the farm. Instead we make most of our own woodchips and control weeds by mulching in  pathways and around all our perennials, shrubs, and trees.

New Growing Season Is Almost Here

Posted on March 21, 2015 at 2:07 PM Comments comments (89)
We are getting ready to start new seedlings. This year we plan on expanding production of lavender that we will be drying and using as one of the ingredients in the Special Tea. This tea is one of our best selling teas and helps people to fall asleep more easily and to get back to sleep if they awake in the middle of the night. We have also been expanding production of blackberries and raspberries as these flavors are so popular in our jams. We will also be boiling our maple sap soon to make this season's maple syrup. We have been using mostly maple syrup for sweetener over the past year as we can market our product as completely grown in Vermont. This is a change from our use of predominantly agave syrup.  Looking forward to the coming growing season!
