Bernie was Annie's pet Dutch rabbit. When she started the company, Annie chose him to be our official "rabbit of approval" representing the simplicity, care, and goodness in all of our products.
Soon after we met 20 years ago, my husband Rob and I started our small, organic vegetable farm in northeastern Connecticut. We planted half an acre of asparagus on former pasture land and slowly expanded every year. Today we have approximately eight acres in certified organic vegetable production and 32 acres in hay.
We use no chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides, instinctively knowing that the health of the soil and water is a priority. We compost, mulch, hoe, weed, and pick off foraging bugs. From the microorganisms in our soil, to the honey bees and butterflies pollinating, to the Purple Martins swooping for insects - all contribute to our organic practices. Working together, we are enhancing our tiny piece of Earth, and that's a beautiful thing.
Bye for now.
