ABOUT THE LAND

The whole property is 8 acres, but 1.5 acres are ready to plant! The land was tilled first in fall 2017, cover cropped with Fall Rye and manured in the spring of 2018 and since been farmed organically by market gardeners, Bri and Mitch of Radical Bloom Farm.  They successfully grew many beautiful vegetable crops, as well as flowers for local markets and are now moving on to new opportunities. The water for this property comes from the city and so is affected by seasonal water use restrictions.  There are other fields that could be made productive as well, but are currently fallow.
