Supernatural Produce & Products
We farm with no tractor, and only basic tools.
We have permanent raised beds which are built up yearly with organic earth matter
No tilling on established beds. This ensures we do not disrupt our precious micro-organisms and soil life

We are working on creating a farm system that is minimally dependant on imported materials, and instead meets its needs from the living dynamics of the farm itself.
It is the biodiversity of the farm (variety of animals, a variety of plants), organized so that the waste of one part of the farm becomes the energy for another. This results in an increase in the farm’s capacity for self-renewal and ultimately makes the farm sustainable
