Building soil health by building up organic matter and encouraging microbial life.
Instead of using herbicides under vines, we only mow the weeds in order to retain organic matter and minimize erosion.
This tractor spreads its weight out over a large surface area, exerting less ground pressure than a human foot.
Compost feeds the soil which in turn feeds the vines, eliminating the need for chemical fertilizers.
While honey bees are not required for grape pollination, they add to the biodiversity of our property.
We manage our non-vineyard forest land in a way that minimizes wildfire risk yet maintains wildlife habitat.
