About the Farm

Great Day gardens grows mixed vegetables, culinary herbs, cut flowers, and live plants all on one acre of land! They also operate a cottage bakery.

About the Practices

Great Day Gardens started their regenerative agriculture journey in 2014. They keep the soil covered through the use of cover crops, crop rotation, and mulching. To maximize living roots they have permanent meadows. To energize with diversity, they build microbial colonies and organic matter through composing, occultation instead of spraying pesticides or tillage, and adding mineral amendments.

Why is protecting the soil important?

The healthiest food comes from healthy soil, and its important for use to leave the land better than we found it.
