Growing Practices
How we farm

Natural and Organic

We are currently in organic transition, meaning we follow organic farming practices but we are not certified organic. We do not use synthetic inputs for weed control or pest control and we use only organic and non-GMO seeds.


Sustainability is a key principle for our farming. We practice sustainability through cover cropping and composting. Cover cropping allows us to return larger amounts of organic matter back to the soil, build soil health and unlock nutrients for our next round of cash crops. Cover cropping also protects the soil and helps to reduce erosion. Composting on farm allows us to produce a nutrient rich amendment that we can apply to the soil to increase organic matter, provide nutrients and build soil health. Sustainability also means running a farm that is financially sustainable. This is a goal that we are working towards, we want to be a long term sustainable farm that can provide year round employment and provides appropriate wages to our employees.


We produce compost on the farm for amending the soil. We collect food waste from several restaurants that we work with and we combine the food waste with brown matter, wood chips, animal manure and green organic matter to make nutrient rich compost. We are not aware of an organic certified compost supplier in the Omaha metro area so we either need to make our own compost or have compost shipped in from long distances.

Low Till

Our goal is to farm using low till practices. We try not to disturb the soil as much as possible after the initial plowing. Most of our soil disturbance is concentrated to the top few inches of the soil so we reduce impact on the worm population and the mycorrhizal networks. We use tarping to cover the soil and breakdown plant matter after crops are removed or mowed down with a flail mower.
