DEDICATED TO FAMILY, SUSTAINABILITY, HARD WORK & PARTNERSHIP.
Our animals will spend their lives on our pastures eating bugs, grass and weeds. Their diet will be supplemented with organically grown grain. We use no GMOs, antibiotics or hormones.
Our vegetables will be grown with no synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides or fungicides. We strive to follow practices of sustainable eco-agriculture which include minimal tilling, using cover crops and on-farm composting for fertility, and trying to co-exist with the animals that want to eat our animals and the bugs that want to eat everythinG else.
We hope this approach will enhance the biodiversity of our farm while giving us plenty of clean, nutritious food.
At his Deep Roots Farm in Southold, Tom Hart, who went into farming about six years ago, raises pigs and chickens in addition to vegetables because he believes that diversification is essential to making a farm sustainable.
