Our Focus

Our focus is on farming that is: organic, small-scale, regenerative, hydroponic, and permaculture methods that are based on community supported agriculture. We also support and respect large-scale farming operations that are efficiently meeting the demands of our world’s more than 8 billion people. We believe that small-scale farming and large-scale farming operations can be complementary.
