Products: Salad mix, greens, seasonal produce, eggs, floral bouquets, and a variety of herbal teas, rubs, and tinctures. Certified Naturally Grown
Availability: Saturday and Tuesday markets, April through November, special order lamb Nov-Jan , eggs and herbal tinctures by request year round
About Us: Farming is a lifestyle choice and more than full time for Lorinda. In addition to working on the farm, Solly has been doing massage work for 28 years. As Solly does in his bodywork, we look for imbalances in the farm, animals, plants, or soil and use gentle natural means to hold the right balance long enough for growth itself to re establish harmony.
Farming practices and philosophy: For 15 years Avalon has been lovingly tended using nature’s own processes to revitalize the soil – composted plant matter and manures, mulching, natural soil supplements, plant rotation, companion planting and cover crops. No chemical fertilizers or insecticides are used.
Our lambs are pasture-raised. We don’t rush their growth, use herbal/natural wormers, and take them directly to a meat processor on the morning they are butchered for a minimum of stress. Stress can put distasteful hormones into the meat. Sheep are an integral part of our farm as ecological mowers and fertilizers. We keep just enough sheep to be in balance with the rotated pasture.
Chickens are part of the overall plan also. They get all the weedings and kitchen scraps, insect pests hand-picked from the gardens, plus all they can gather when free-ranging the pasture in the afternoons. The poultry also have organic grain feed available with herbs and kelp added to winter rations. They produce bright-yoked eggs.
Bringing health to the soil and water, contentment to the animals and birds who share our lives, vitality to our food, freedom from pain for our bodies, and joy for our spirits – it is all part of Avalon dreams becoming reality.

Products: Strawberries, blackberries, peaches, nectarines, apples, plums, pears, sweet potatoes, vegetables, pumpkins and fall mums.

About Us: We began planting our orchard in 2005. Our fruits include over 30 varieties of both peaches and apples, 10 varieties of plums and pears, strawberries, blackberries and blueberries. 2008 will be our first season to crop our fruits. We hope to become full-time farmers by 2009 and provide our community with high-quality local fruit.
Farming practices and philosophy: We use the integrated pest management program for our spray guide, using the lowest rate possible and extending the pre-harvest interval when we can. Leaf and soil analysis are used to determine fertilizer needs, using natural fertilizer products whenever possible. Our dogs are keeping the deer, groundhogs and rabbits under control. We hope to teach them to run the crow from the orchard as they are our most damaging pest. We hope to see you at the Market.
