Trillium Haven Farm
We believe that there are better ways to farm other than using the industrial model: small-scale farming keeps us attuned to our land and our community. This small scale means we do not have to follow the current agribusiness model with its large equipment, huge tracts of land, and significant distances between the grower and consumer. We are members of this community, selling directly to members of this community. This gives people the opportunity to keep their resources here instead of supporting absentee corporations.
