We love farming and we are blessed with 60 beautiful acres of fertile ground! But….what to grow?!? We got our answer one day, while enjoying lively conversation and a delectable craft beer at a nearby brewery. The brewer suggested that he wanted to make a chocolate mint stout. We said, well…our farm is around the corner, we will grow you some chocolate mint! It all took off from there. That summer, we grew 5 varieties of mint: Chocolate, Mojito, Julep, Spearmint, Peppermint, Berries & Cream AND two beautiful rows of Munstead Lavender and Balm/Lemon Balm. All of the mint transplants were purchased from a local organic herb nursery and the plants were raised without the use of any pesticides. In fact, we used the Pennsylvania Organic manual as our guideline for growing, using OMRI approved fertilizers and organic compost. We also created a dynamic field, by attracting "good" predator insects to our crop, like bees and wasps. It was quite an adventure!
