The main body of our farm sits on a bend in the South Toe River. We are definitely not the first ones to coax a living from the sandy loam. We are always reminded of those who came before as we pick points and pottery from our soils, some thousands of years old. We grow six acres of Biodynamic vegetables in a scattering of soil types and fields, from sandy loam to clay loam. As a wife and husband team of Nicole DelCogliano and Gaelan Corozine we have been here since 2001, along with our two daughters.
We started practicing biodynamic farming on the land in 2004. We feel it speaks to our philosophy and perspective of approaching our farm as a whole organism. Husbanding animals is also very important for us as we make our own Biodynamic compost from their manures .Farming is more than economics to us; it is a lifestyle and a culture that we strive for. Our two daughters have grown up from birth on our backs in the fields and we are immensely proud of that.
We grow vegetables of all kinds, a mix of heirlooms and hybrids, outdoors and in 4 high tunnels. We have worked hard to find which varieties work well for our land, but are always exploring new products. We use a 45 hp Kioti Tractor for bed preparation, primarily using a Imants spader. As inquisitive people we nurture an understanding and study of the land we farm on.
We market 9- 11 months a year, selling at the oldest market in Asheville, North Asheville Tailgate Market and Asheville City Market.(ASAP farmers market).
