Flower Hill Farm

“We want to communicate the importance of good agricultural practices that help to create pollinator sanctuaries, clean healthy food, regenerative soil, and community.”

“We grow edible and ornamental flowers, herbs, and vegetables.  Our methods follow organic principles.  For example, we source seeds and plants from organic providers whenever possible. ”

We avoid a wide array of synthetically derived “solutions” whether they come in the form of fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides.  (Somehow, using these methods has come to be called conventional, and too often they do not thoughtfully consider those who live “downstream”.)   We strive to build good soil by amending the soil with organic materials, and deal with weeds and insect pest in a way that we believe honors our commitment to long-term care of our farm, our watershed, our environment and your world. “
