Uproot Farm is Certified Organic by MOSA.
In 2017 we will have only 6 of our 30 acres in vegetable production and each field gets planted to a cover crop at some point in the season, either before or after the vegetables. Through cover crops and compost applications, our goal is to rebuild the soil after years of conventional production.
Beginning in 2017, we’ll be transitioning to a more intensive, less mechanized growing system because we’ll be losing access to some land we’ve been leasing. By 2019 the transition will be complete and we’ll grow on 3 acres, with two hoophouses for season extension.

Oats and Peas, Buckwheat, Sorghum Sudan Grass and Soybeans, Rye and Hairy Vetch.
