Growing Naturally, from the Roots to the Fruits:
We are dedicated to using sustainable practices to ensure healthy and happy soils to grow our flowers. We draw on a variety of practices from the no-till, organic and permaculture movements. For more information please visit our No Till Farming page.
Participating in the Life of the Community:
Just as all of the plants and animals on our farm are connected through their shared ecosystem, we recognize that our farm is connected to the community. Spring Forth Farm could not exist without our customers, friends, family, and supporters. We feel it is important for us to give back to the community as well.
- We grow produce to donate to the Rougemont Food Pantry every 2 weeks from April-November
- We commit to donating a percentage of our gross sales to support local hunger issues in our community
- We host on farm quiet days in the spring and fall
Living a Simple Life:
We want to live simply, take care of our bodies and minds, and meet as many of our own needs as we can. We know that good food and an active lifestyle are essential to our well-being. Our long-term goal for Spring Forth Farm is to grow into a homestead that not only provides food to the community, but also meets nearly all of our own food and energy needs. In this way we will be able to care for ourselves inexpensively and leave a smaller footprint, reducing our need for and concerns about money. We buy used when we can, only the amount of any item we need, and actively try to meet our needs and the needs of others through community and relationships. By living simply, we are better able to sustain ourselves, promote community, and care for God’s creation.
