About Us

 

Casey Meadows Farm has evolved over a period of 5 years. The first trees we planted on the property were two tiny apple trees that we grew from seed. We then proceeded to plant two other varieties of apple trees, a pear and two plum trees; two varieties of cherries, quince, two fig trees, persimmons, apricot and kiwi trees.

After one year we received a small harvest of apples and cherries. There was an already established Peach tree on the property that produced several bucket loads of peaches during our first summer. In the coming years we continued to plant and replenish the property. We planted 4 varieties of grapes, raspberries, blueberries as well as a horse chestnut and a gingko biloba tree; one black walnut, forty fir trees, eleven pine trees and one red maple. In five years, our trees are growing and flourishing. Alder has also taken hold on the property and we have over 40 young trees growing throughout the farm.

As the property became nourished with attention and flora, we would notice new herbs growing on the farm each year. We now have several Comfrey patches, Burdock, Yarrow, St. John’s Wort, Stinging Nettle, Mullen, Milk Thistle, Dandelion and a plethora of Red Clover.

In addition to wild harvesting many of our herbs, we introduce new herbs to our farm each year. Next spring 2021 we will be growing our own Brahmi, American Skullcap, and harvesting and processing the first leaves from our young Ginkgo Biloba tree. We have also have a variety of mint, lemon balm, thyme and oregano growing.

In 2019 we erected a 8ft by 20ft greenhouse which houses, broccoli, cauliflower, fresh dill, zucchini, cucumber, red pepper, tomatoes, radishes and our organically grown Indica Cannabis plants that will be cultivated into herbal capsules for sleep and pain issues. We also dry many of our harvested herbs in the green house before processing. Our outside garden beds are loaded with fresh strawberries, red garlic, and even more red clover.

We use only carbon neutral farm machinery on the property, everything is electric including our chainsaw, tractor and even our very own herbal delivery vehicles are both electric vehicles

While working on the land, we have learned a lot about respecting nature and showing gratitude for all the plant life that shows up year to year. We are careful not to over mow or trim the property in order to respect the natural plant diversity including black berries, salmon berries and Thimble Berries who’s blossoms each year attract a variety of pollinators to our little farm.
