Our farm was once a dairy operation in the early 1900s, started by the Schull family. In the mid-century it became Glad Acres with a communal living setting. The Moon and Sixpence Bed and Breakfast opened on this site in the 1980s, and shortly after the start of the 21st century, the property became a farm again, following biointensive practices.
In 2017 the property changed hands yet again, and now that we've built our team we're developing our vision for the future. We intend to use organic and sustainable farming practices, and we'll likely incorporate some permaculture and agriforestry principles in our endeavors, too.
We plan to experiment with a variety of product lines over the next few years, including fruits, nuts, vegetables, legumes, herbs, mushrooms, eggs, and flowers. We also hope to develop some value added products down the road, depending on which products thrive here.
We're passionate about food. We're also committed to our island and our earth, and we hope to create a place that offers beauty and joy for our friends, our families, and other visitors, too.
