We have always had a love for, and fascination with, growing our own food.
1. It’s healthier for us, 2. It tastes better, and 3. It’s cheaper!
Our garden, which is about 2,000 square feet, meets organic standards – no pesticides, no miracle grow, no fertilizer or mulch other than organic compost, straw and cow manure – the natural things. Our fencing and raised beds are constructed from cedar logs. When it’s dry, we water with harvested rain water or pump creek water onto the garden.
Some of the edibles you will find on our farm include:
Peaches, Blueberries, Strawberries, Grapes, Asparagus, Potatoes, Peppers, Tomatoes, Carrots, Beans, Peas, Cucumber, Squash, Zucchini, Onions, Garlic, Melons, Spearmint, Rosemary, Oregano, Thyme, Lemon Balm, Sweet Potatoes and Mushrooms!
Beyond the garden we also have two honeybee hives, we produce 100% pure maple syrup in the winter, and we raise meat hogs and ducks for eggs at a rate of approx 3 dozen per week. We also recently purchased two dairy goats. Finally, we hope to open up at the Georgetown Farmer’s Market once we have enough product – check us out and support the initiatives of local growin’ from Slippery Slopes Farm!
