The Farm

A January 2019 view of our 1-acre mandala

Change doesn’t happen overnight but, being small, we have embraced the slow and thoughtful progress we have made on this land since settling here in 2016. It can seem like an eternity between pulling thistle, nurturing the soil, planting the first seed, finding ways to provide it with moisture, and the moment that seedling pushes up from the earth. It’s even longer before it grows into a plant from which we can harvest. But oh, how good it tastes and how satisfying it is when that time finally arrives! Read a bit more on how we farm.

It is the basic intent to develop Hedgerow on the principles of self-sufficiency, self-reliance and good stewardship all while striving to think and problem-solve holistically. It is in that vain that we work to raise the healthiest and happiest plants, animals, and humans possible.

Eating what is grown by local farmers, caught in local waters, and raised in local pastures is not just a chef-driven trend, but a practice with significant history. Food is not only sustenance but also medicine, culture, and history. It has the power to preserve our roots, regardless of whether or not we still speak the language or follow old beliefs. These practices can make a huge difference in supporting the environment, our local economy, & our bodies. And, of course, it also happens to produce the most flavorful food with a true sense of terroir!
