What is Biointensive Growing? Biointensive agriculture is an organic agricultural system that focuses on achieving maximum yields from a minimum area of land, while simultaneously increasing biodiversity and sustaining the fertility of the soil. The goal of the method is long term sustainability on a closed system basis. Together these techniques have developed into what is now called GROW BIOINTENSIVE.
One of our farms mission is to address the unstable nature of the global food system, which nearly all of us depend on. This farming method we want to share with you are designed to provide food through out the seasons for those who practice it. While continually building and developing the soil and conserving natural resources. The result is producing safe food year after year with great results, growing and eating seasonally while creating a deeper connection with your food.
