Why We Farm

John La Puma, the farm’s designer and farmer, believes in enhancing food security, building resilience and creating beauty wherever he can. He also believes that home grown produce tastes better, is more nutrient-rich and is better and more delicious ``culinary medicine`` than any other produce. He’s fortunate to have contributed to that body of medical knowledge (see below). Lastly, he believes that regenerative farms which build drought-resistant healthy soil can slow global warming. They fight drought, improve fertility, encourage biodiversity, develop fungal ecosystems and boost productivity. Those are all goals of the farm.
