Farm Lande

Emerging Grower


The Project

This grant provided materials to build a walk-in cooler on the farm, tripling cold-storage capacity and allowing for crops that require refrigeration, including new varieties and greater quantities of crops.

Environmental Impact

“We practice no-till, chemical-free, regenerative farming, a style of agriculture that improves soil health by continuously having plants in the ground. This promotes mycorrhizal relationships and increases microbial activity and organic matter, which sequesters carbon and supports a food web of insects, small mammals, and birds. Increasing our cold storage and food production capacity will increase the availability of sustainably grown, low-carbon footprint produce in our region, reducing reliance on food shipped from areas far away.”
