Welcome to Lilac Valley Farm! We’re as organic as it gets – we never use chemicals, we tend to each plant by hand, and we offer all this wonderful stuff to you!
It all starts with the soil (doesn’t it always?). We use greensand, – a marine sandstone that’s rich in minerals for plants – compost from grass-fed cows, and compost from our organically-fed chickens. That’s pretty much it! We have a thriving colony of enormous worms in our soil that do a lot of the soil husbandry for us. They’re happy, our plants are happy, so we’re happy!
As far as bugs go, we have a crack team of bug experts who take care of most of the problem for us. They’re out there at the crack of dawn every day patrolling the area for obnoxious, tasty pests. And all they want in return is a little bit of scratch – it doesn’t get any better than that! Our girls (and Nana Roo) gobble down every juicy bug they can catch, and thankfully they can catch a lot. What they do happen to miss, we squish by hand. Or we collect for the chickens – it depends on the day!
We offer our produce, and our organic moisturizer, every Saturday at the Milford Farmer’s market in Milford, NH, from 10am to 1pm. Also, feel free to contact us if you’re looking for something in particular!
