Strawn’s organic farming practices are the way farming used to be using natural and biologically derived materials to produce healthy and delicious farm products. The techniques enhance the natural conditions of San Luis Valley soil in a three-fold way. First, by increasing organic content to provide more and better food for the living-soil food web and unlocking those nutrients, its also important at critical times of the year. Secondly, some work to increase the arability changes the soil chemistry and make the dirt a better environment for growing, the alkaline and sandy soil needs neutralizing microbe-level activity, achieved through the organic decay of elements within the compost and amendments worked into the soil. Thirdly by utilizing tools and techniques which concentrate and retain the soil structure in a permanent, or long lasting way, is permaculture.
Permaculture is an idealist and lofty philosophy that mankind can yet regenerate and improve our landscapes and local environments. By practicing observation of nature, building for the future, understand and research the present, expect degradation and decay going so far as to build it into a sustainable system.
Initially, before Strawn Berry ever was, a lot of history has gone into the agricultural toolbox of techniques and crops. Appreciating the causes and conditions for productive & healthy farms means recognizing the partnership between man and nature.
Cultivating the vitality of the soil has improved our productivity and quality, and its the way to grow better, year after year!
New for 2021 is we will be opening a Pick-yer-Own Strawberry option, by appointment. Please contact David to check availability!
