They tend hundreds of acres of vital soil enriched by years of sophisticated, on farm composting operations. They take tree leaves, their own organic production by-products and skillfully make rich organic compost. Soil thus enriched retains moisture, does not require irrigation, and produces sturdy high Brix plants. Brix is a measurement of the natural sugar content in foods. This intelligently managed soil, and the hot days and cool nights of a Northern summer produce highly nutritious and delicious cabbage.
