“The best helping hand you can find is at the end of your own arm” – My Father
Son of Something Farm is an all hand powered farm with no tractor. We don’t have the need for a tractor nor would we want to use one. What makes us a sustainable farm is that we don’t rely on fossil fueled machinery to do the work for us.
Working with nature instead of against it, we use wheel barrows to move around our high quality compost to our permanent no-till beds. We use appropriate technology to save time and labor making us highly efficient and extremely productive. Utilizing hand tools and working smarter not harder allows use to bring the highest quality products directly to our customers.
We believe our soil is the most important asset we have and treat it accordingly. A tractor is a heavy piece of equipment that compacts the soil and hurts the microbiology. By using a no till method and a patient approach we mimic nature to provide quality and not quantity. Using animals to do the work on our farm creates a closed loop system that provides for the land and the people.
