Farming practices

As regenerative organic farmers we do not use any chemicals/synthetic sprays or till our soil. We build soil on top of the existing ground using natural organic matter.

​This way of farming protects our top soil and the soil biology. It also replenishes the soil with nutrients healing our existing soil.

We are not certified organic as the cost of certification is a lot for a Little Farm. It is also not overly practical to go through the lengthy certification process for leased land. We do not own any of the land we farm on, therefore it doesn't make a lot of sense to invest in certification of a piece of land that we may only be able to lease for a few years. 

Rest assured we hold ourselves to the strictest organic principles. 

​The best certification is being fully transparent. Therefore, we welcome any questions and are always happy to show you the farm in person. We also try to show you everything that is happening on farm on our Instagram. 

Packaging 

We use home compostable packaging for our Farm Boxes.

​You are welcome to return your box and any packaging inside the box to us.

We will reuse the boxes where possible, and compost the boxes and packaging that are at the end of their life. 

If you pick up your box then please return your box to your pick up point. If you receive your box by delivery, please leave your old box on your doorstep for collection on your delivery day.
