WHAT DOES SUSTAINABLE FARMING ENCOMPASS?

At Fox Hill Farm,our dedication to working from the soil up includes leaving the earth we use for food substantially improved from when we began working with it. Some of our sustainable farming practices focuses on:

  • -Using specific compost to stimulate the soil biology and help with the food soil web. A food soil web refers to the relationships between living organisms in the soil – all of which are critical to the health of our farm and garden.
  • -Building the nutrient levels in the soil by applying both a wide spectrum of minerals and adequate amounts nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.
  • -Limitingwater consumption by using drip irrigation and potentiometers to determine adequate soil moisture.
  • -High tech irrigation monitoring devices so if something breaks, we know about it immediately.
  • -Mulching our plants and using reclaimed material when possible.
