Creating extremely healthy soil is La Nay Ferme’s top priority. In biodynamic language farmers and experts refer to healthy soil as living soil. The idea is to create a balanced and fertile ecosystem of life. By following the very basic principles of biodynamics, farmers easily improve soil which enhances the nutrition, quality and flavor of the produce they grow.

It is not very complicated or difficult to create living soil. Our farm started out as sandy as a beach but has become more healthy and productive each year. This is happening because we focus on improving the health of our soil by following the biodynamic principles. We always give more back to the soil than what we take. This and other processes are creating living soil along with an ecosystem that heals itself naturally.

We invite you to join our CSA and enjoy our healthy, safe produce each week.

Beyond Organic

Having written previous posts regarding the subject Organic, we hope its clear that the standard has lost its purity. It has become acquainted with too many substances that make it less than safe. The origins of Organic were most likely pure and we applaud those that started the movement for safe food. Unfortunately, Organic is becoming more of a overpriced label rather than a benchmark for safe food.

We are focused on sound sustainable principles which will ensure our produce is safe. While staying focused on safe farming practices, we are very close to becoming a biodynamic farm. A Biodynamic farm produces safe food but the term is not in the mainstream vernacular.

Support a farm that is open about its farming practices by purchasing produce from our Farm Market.
