Girard Farm grows 4 acres of mixed vegetables and raises laying hens on pasture. We are entering our seventh season in 2022. We use a permanent raised-bed, no-till system and certified organic practices. We do all planting, cultivation, and harvesting using hand tools. We make our own potting mix, and use soil blocks to start seedlings. The laying hens are housed in an Eggmobile that moves over a 6-acre pasture. We sell at a local farmers’ markets, at our farm stand, CSA programs, and wholesale accounts.
We are currently adding a number of perennial crops including fruit trees, cane fruit, asparagus, blueberries, herbs.
