One other feature of the development is a 7 acre farm, Bayberry Farm.Now the 7 acres that are Bayberry Farm are slowly being turned into a sustainable farm
Through the use of cover crops, green manures, and crop rotations. 2011 was Bayberry Farm's first year which was a great success. Bayberry Farm grows everything because we are passionate about it. We love testing new products and varieties and are always eager to share our finds with patrons and shareholders. All the plants are started in our little greenhouse on the farm with soil blocks. This eliminates the use of plastic pots.Bayberry Farm does not use any petroleum based insecticides or herbicides. Only organic sprays are used when necessary.
Plants are protected by beneficial bugs, row covers, and the use of top quality plants. Bayberry Farm uses cover crops for erosion control and soil amendment. Crop rotation is utilized to encourage diversity and to discourage disease.
