How do we practice sustainability at Foxhollow?
At Foxhollow Farm we see sustainability as the act of giving back to the land what has been taken from it. We use sustainable practices in order to increase the health of all aspects of our environment; the soil, the plants, the animals, the woodlands and streams, and the people!
When we harvest the vegetables that have soaked up the vital minerals and nutrients from the soil, we replenish those nutrients with compost and cover crops that are tilled back into the earth.
When our cattle take nutrients from the land by grazing the pastures, they give back by stimulating stronger re-growth of the grasses with each bite. The cattle act as natural fertilizers of the land as they move throughout the farm.
When we treat the fields with bio-dynamic sprays made from plants, minerals, and compost from the land we are increasing the ability for each plant to grow stronger roots and to take in more nutrients from the water, air, sun and soil.
Give and take – use and replenish – sustaining radiant health.
What is Biodynamics?
Biodynamic agriculture is similar to organic farming in the sense that it is chemical free. No chemical fertilizers or pesticides, no antibiotics or growth hormones are used. The biodynamic techniques go a step further than organic methods by using specially prepared sprays made from organic matter such as herbs, quartz crystal, and compost.
