Queens Farm is always learning, observing, and thinking outside the box to see how we can use our land to grow more food! Queens Farm grows over 200 crops in our fields, with a strong focus on annual vegetables. The farm also has perennial beds that feature asparagus, rhubarb, berries, and flowers. We offer a wide assortment of culturally diverse produce throughout the 9-month growing cycle.
Garden Style Farming
Queens Farm practices garden-style farming. The farm uses a tractor to prepare the planting beds for cultivation in spring, then relies on hand tools, simple machinery, and the power and dedication of a farm crew to tend to the plants from seed to harvest. This style of farming allows us to keep our carbon footprint low by minimizing diesel fuel outputs from the tractor. This method also speaks to agricultural history where in colonial times, farm implements powered by animals were used to till the land and then worked by hand by the farmers.
Sustainable Agricultural Practices
Sustainable agriculture is the practice of growing food in a way that balances environmental stewardship, community development and economic viability. Sustainable growing practices do a phenomenal job in keeping the ecology of Queens Farm in balance. Through the interplay of different systems working together, we are able to keep pest and disease pressure to a minimum while building healthier soil and plants. Practices implemented at Queens Farm are crop rotation, intercropping, cover crops, natural mulch, and pollinator- friendly perennial borders.Learn More
