ECO-FARM INITIATIVE

Support the eco-system that surrounds your farm

JOIN OUR MISSION

The ecosystem that surrounds our farm is important, not just for us but for you too! By providing habitat and attracting beneficial insects, birds, reptiles, amphibians and even some mammals we are able to reduce weed, disease and pest pressures and improve pollination naturally while also reducing soil erosion and beautifying our space. While this is not a priority to most farms, we believe it is an important part of our sustainability to produce great food for our community.

You can help! All funds raised through our initiative go towards planning, planting and maintaining these revolutionary and inventive systems.

OUR GOALS AND PROJECTS

BENEFICAL HEDGEROWS

The goal for the hedgerows is to create a beautiful and functional windbreak while providing habitat and attracting beneficial insects, birds, reptiles and amphibians. This project is unique in that we hope to create a blend of native, ornamental and fruiting shrubs, perennials and grasses beneficial for both ecosystem services and aesthetics. Within the hedgerows, there will also be additional habitat through birdhouses and bug hotels!

PONDS

Krestova is a very dry place however our farm tends to see a large number of water-loving organisms. To create a permanent pond we hope to increase habitat for amphibians such as the frogs we commonly see around the barns in spring while also providing a source of hydration for insects, birds, reptiles and mammals. We hope to create a pond environment in each field within our beneficial hedgerows.

PASTURE RENOVATION

Our farm has been overgrazed for quite a few years. Utilizing regenerative soil and grassland management strategies, we hope to improve the nutrient cycling, carbon sequestration and soil building in our partially forested property using livestock, equipment and cover crops.

NIGHT FLIERS

Farms are cyclic ecosystems with solutions arising to problems all the time. One iussue we have seen has been the explosion of field mice in recent years and we hope by attempting to attract owls back to the property they can help to balance this population.

Another important flier of the night are bats. Bats have had a difficult time adjusting to anthropogenic changes and have seen their populations and ranges shrink n recent years. One of our goals is to help increase our population of bats through proper housing and monitoring. Bats can benefit the farm by controlling flying insects and not just for the crops but us and our livestock.

We strive to be more than just an ordinary farm.

It’s our care and management of our soil and environment that makes the difference.
