Weathervane Farm's farming practices are rooted in developing a greater understanding of how to best relate to the land and community. They do not follow any particular methodology, yet borrow from several. They do not use cookie-cutter approaches, but instead seek solutions that make sense for the health of their specific farming circumstance.
"Our commitment to you is not to use any petrochemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. It is our belief that healthy soil is required for healthy plants, free of pests and disease. We strive to understand and work in partnership with the organisms around us from the ground level of roots and soil up to trees and birds. The fertility of our soil is managed through the use of green manure crops, compost application, mineral additions, crop rotation, and cultivating our plantings with the use of the tractor or with hoe in hand."
