There is nothing better then planting a seed and watching your food grow. On Magnificent Hill we strive to produce all the food we need to sustain ourselves and our guests
Our vegetable garden starts in our living room early in the Spring and we preserve as much as possible to make it through the long winter months. We have begun saving our Heirloom and open pollinated seeds for future plantings. We have planted an organic vineyard with four 75’ rows of grapes, an orchard with several varieties of fruit trees conducive to a cold northern climate, and other small fruits and berries.
Our homestead has been completely pesticide-free since we bought the farm in 2002. Our intention has been to create a small, sustainable homestead that could produce its chemical free fruits and vegetables using appropriate regional varieties and small-scale methods of growing. We raise our own livestock including chickens, goats and pigs and do as much as we can to prepare them for the feast.
We salvage building materials and create unique and useful living spaces. This year we plan to build a permanent greenhouse with an outdoor kitchen which will include a smoke house and clay oven in the court yard. We encourage you to take part throughout the year to learn about living sustainable in a modern society. Please call or email for rates and availability if you are interested in taking part and learning with us. school and group rates available.
We sell at the farm also during the summer, we have vegetables, fruits, goat milk soap, beeswax candles, honey, Maple Syrup, Jams, Breads, Pies, eggs. Please drop by to see what's in season.
