About Us
We started small with a tiny garden and realized how much better everything tastes when it is fresh and in season. Over the years we created a big garden, growing almost everything, from heirloom tomatoes to potatoes, beans, beets, herbs, garlic... plums, apples... Since 30 years we are interested in whole foods, with no pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, chemical fertilizer. We try to use organic products as much as we can, substituting vinegar for apple vinegar and using as little salt and sugar as possible. On our farm we have all kinds of animals, horses, jersey cows, pigs, chicken, turkeys, ducks and geese and guinea hens. We try to live in harmony with nature and provide the best life for our animals. In 2013 we added bees to our repertoire, this is quite an adventure in itself! In 2014 we harvested our first honey, how rewarding was that. We do not have honey for sale in the moment, we try to just take as little as possible to give our bees a fighting chance in this crazy world.

Ingredients
In our staple organic bread we use organic spelt, organic rye, sunflower seeds, sour dough, well water, honey and salt. By the way, we mill the flour in our own grain mill.

Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
Almost everything that we sell in a jar is grown on our farm. Exceptions are being made, we do not grow pineapple or oranges lol
