Your Local Farm Family
We have been bringing the best tasting, cleanest, freshest vegetables and most beautiful cut flowers to the Falls Park Farmers Market in Sioux Falls since 2000. Our children have worked besides us through the years. Now new little people are filling our lives … Ah, the GRANDCHILDREN!!! The best days are when the grandchildren are on the farm with us, digging in the dirt, looking for worms, hunting for toads.
Our Love and Desire
We have two, actually. Growing chemical-free, nutrient-dense, life-imparting, gourmet vegetables and soul-lifting flowers for our family, friends, and loyal customers, AND enjoying every possible moment with our grandkids. In addition to growing clean, healthy food for people, we want our farm to be a safe, nurturing oasis for us, our grandchildren, AND for birds, butterflies, bees, earthworms, and microbes.
Supercharged Organics with FLAVOR!
Biodynamics is different from any other practice. “Bio” means life and “dynamic” means energy. Our job as a farmer is to look at life and the flow of energy around us, including cosmic and planetary energy. In biodynamic farming, we use infinitesimal amounts of substances to make larger changes, i.e. the butterfly effect. The universe is brimming with Life-Force Energy; we use biodynamics to direct this energy to our plants and to our farm.
When microbes are allowed to flourish, they pre-digest the minerals found in the surrounding soil. These predigested minerals are the perfect plant food. Balanced, mineralized soils result in balanced growth, strong plants, and high disease resistance, for plants and humans alike. We mineralize our gardens and work to establish the millions of microbes needed to break down these minerals, making them easily absorbable for our plants. (Salt-type artificial fertilizers tie up minerals, placing them out of reach of plants.) We work hand in hand with experienced soil consultants, paying attention to trace mineral levels, calcium-magnesium ratios, etc. Additional organic nutrients are pushed through water lines to stimulate and feed the soil’s microscopic critters. Crops are misted with organic highly mineralized foliar sprays to fine-tune the genetic ability of each flower and each vegetable.
Flavor and Color
Flavors and colors are created in the plant using the soil’s minerals as building blocks. (Synthetic chemicals upset the mineral balance in the soil.) As the level of minerals in a vegetable or flower increases, so the nutrition and color increases. As the nutrition increases, the flavor skyrockets. A mineral-rich, nutrient-dense carrot, tomato, or leaf of lettuce, full of its natural Life-Force Energy, will taste better, sweeter, and richer. When a conventionally grown vegetable tastes like nothing but fiber, your tongue is probably correct.
The demand for living nutrition, locally grown, beautiful, gourmet vegetables continues to climb. Parents want fresh, clean, safe food for their families, food that will nourish their children’s bodies while promoting their health. This food must also taste GOOD! Good flavor goes hand in hand with mineralization. You will find both flavor and nutrition with Seedtime’s biodynamic farm-fresh vegetables.
