Biodiversity, regenerative farming, and polyculture (more than one crop agriculture), are ways to keep a farm’s immune system healthy.
How is polyculture expressed at farms that include vineyards?
600 olive trees (of Spanish varietal), 100 fruit and nut trees, vegetable gardens and pollinator friendly landscaping everywhere! We also have a demonstration garden showing California natives and their survival without irrigation.
We presently farm 16 acres of vineyard and 3.5 acres of produce. We sell over 5,000 pounds annually of produce to our local grocers.
We have trained up abandoned apple trees along our fences, and let sheep and cows graze our pastures.
