For nearly a decade, we have been known as one of the premier growers in the region. Providing beautiful and flavorful produce to our customers is top priority. Our carrots are known as some of the sweetest, our kale and spinach, the most tender, our tomatoes, mouthwatering... The list goes on. It's all in how we grow:
We are a "no-till" , or "low-till" farm, meaning that we rarely till the soil here. Except for a few small areas, we primarily use traditional hand tools to cultivate the soil, and we layer with composted manure and cover-crops to build the composition. We choose to farm this way to preserve the minerals in the soil which would otherwise be lost with excessive tilling. The "no-till" method also reduces competition from weeds, and helps to lock in moisture in our hot, dry Indiana summers.
For as long as we can remember, healthy food has been a major priority for us. We have learned of the wild herbs and edibles of the land, traveled America backpacking and hiking, and ultimately became small-scale farmers trying to keep an anchor in tradition amidst an ever-progressing modern world.
We are living and growing food the same way our grandparents and great-grand parents did and it is only in the modern day that we give it a name such as "no-till", "organic", "chemical-free", etc. We just grow food. We grow a LOT of it. Thousands upon thousands of pounds of food are grown on just one acre using bio-dynamic and intensive cropping.
All of the work that goes into Schooner Creek Farm, from seed ordering, planning, production, labor, harvest, retail, delivery, media & more- is done by husband and wife team, Doug and Sarah.
