We are changing our website, finally, to reflect so many of the other changes that have occurred. Our homepage now references our partnered activities with Scofield Farms, who have farmed the soil of Arbuckle many decades longer than we newcomers have. Actually, we have 5 more years to go before we can talk about any decade at all, but who’s counting? The information available will hopefully explain more about our collective growing practices for the benefit of our customers, both locally and in our market in the Ashland, Oregon area. If organic growing is "the left", and conventional farming is "the right", then I guess we can be described as "slightly to the right of left". We will soon have pages developed to explain our "beyond organic" description that we use…it doesn’t mean we feel that we are better than organic, or that organic is better than us. It simply indicates our evolution past the foundation laid down by the organic growing movement. More on all that soon…. We have been busy. This last weekend we lifted hundreds of dollars of dahlia tubers from all over the property; the first stage toward their relocation in a permanent flower bed actually designed to support this spectacular cut flower.
