The Floyd Eco Village Farm is made up of three and a half cultivated acres of mixed vegetables, flowers and small fruits. It is our mission to grow healthy nutrient dense food and for us that means no synthetic pesticides, herbicides and fungicides! Instead, soil balancing and soil re-minerilization are the tools we use. By adopting the use of cover crops, inoculating the soil with beneficial microbes and composting we are able to help create a healthy ecosystem.
A healthy soil will make a healthy plant but the antithesis is true as well. A healthy plant can create healthy soil. Plants create a beneficial symbiotic relationship with soil microorganisms in which a healthy plant feeds the soil life and in turn the soil life feeds the plant. A healthy plant will be able to photosynthesize more efficiently, thus sending more sugar down to its root zone helping to insure a healthier soil life. Understanding how this relationship works allows us to focus not only on soil health but also plant health.
Currently, we sell our produce on site at the Farm Store, at Farmer's Markets, to local wholesalers and to the many spirited locavores supporting Floyd County growers in the form of a CSA.
The store is now Open during Daylight hours. Stop in and checkout the freshest produce in town!
Honeybees are very important to the land and our farm. At this time we do not have honeybees but hope to have hives again in the future. For information about having your own hives, you can reach out to our good friend and Floyd neighbor, Gunther Hauk of Spikenard Farm Bee Sanctuary.
There are several gardens with a variety of flowers and plants. You'll also find bridges, picnic area, sitting areas, trellises, gazebo, and a walking trail through the woods.
While you are here make sure to check out our medicinal walking garden and look for both of our LOVE signs.
