To our neighbors, We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience of our frost fan. We acknowledge the noise level associated with its use. It is certainly not our intention to cause any disruption in our community. Unfortunately, our grapes are highly susceptible to frost damage, which severely effects their production and overall health. The frost fan is programmed to automatically start based on the onset of critical ambient temperatures that effect grapevine tissue at different growth stages....

Our 2018 season is underway. Pruning has begun here at the vineyard and we are excited to get this season started. We try to delay pruning as long as possible for multiple reasons but mostly to protect the vines from active bacterial activity that may be present in early winter versus late winter and to help jumpstart new growth. This hasn't exactly helped this year as winter has set in late with below normal temperatures and plenty of snow just as we started. The conditions have limited our...

We wanted to share this amazing video from Sustainable Human on how a forest ecosystem communicates. Mycorrhizal fungi is the engine of not only this communication, but the preponderance of plant life functions. It is literally a fungal web that binds, connects, and sustains life for a plant community. The principle is the same whether it's an old growth forest or backyard vegetable farm. Soil microbiology and specifically micorrhizae is the life force of a living ecosystem. We hope you enjoy...

On September 15th, Hurricane Maria ravaged through the Common Wealth of Dominica (not Dominican Republic) as a category 5 storm. What was left in the wake of its path was nothing short of total devastation. Dominica's infrastructure and economy were left in the rubble of mud slides, floods, and mangled trees. Life's basic necessities of food and water were suddenly no longer available. But out of this destruction, there is a renewed hope and optimism based on self resilience and community...

To help commemorate the release of the iPhone X, and the imminent disposal of millions of throw away phones in addition to billions that have already been disposed of, outsourced supply chains, unsafe working conditions, throw away economics, plastic oceans, and toxic components, we thought we would share some tips to maximize the life span of the phones that are left. These tips are courtesy of the new film Death By Design. You can check out the films website here. Whether we view...

We are big fans of industrial hemp. How could you not be. It is one of the most renewable resources on this planet. It's truly natures definition of sustainability. As the human race continues to destroy forests and mountain sides for building materials, and render thousands of acres of farmland useless with GMO's, pesticides and fertilizers for subsidized industrial agricultural crops, hemp remains federally prohibited to grow in the United States. The good news is that more and more state...

It ensures healthy farming and healthy food. It protects the soil, water and the climate. It does not contaminate the environment with chemical inputs or use genetically engineered organisms. It places people and farmers – consumers and producers, not corporations who control our food now – at its very heart." A recent...

Thanks to our friend Skip Jones with RSJ Design and Construction for embracing our vision and getting things going. You can learn more about RSJ here. Stay tuned for...

Harvest · 10/10/2017
Our 2017 harvest season wrapped up on Monday with the harvest of our Syrah. Last Thursday we finished the Primitivo, and the week before we finished our Chardonnay. This harvest season has truly been all about friends and family. Being a small family farm, we depend on everyone pitching in. Monday was no different, as our son had the day off from school and eagerly joined the crew trimming clusters and picking leaves out of the bins. A heartfelt thank you to all those who helped us this season....
