At Whiskey Hill Farms, nothing is too “wild” for us to grow. We employ poly-cropping techniques of permaculture — our six football-field-sized greenhouses are food forests. To mimic the natural world of multi-layered poly-culture, we grow turmeric and gingers underground, then we grow melons, heirloom peppers and basil varieties at ground level. We then plant vining fruits such as tomatoes, passion fruit and lemon cucumbers, and finally fruit trees such as mango and papayas.
This technique enables harvest of many layers of beautiful produce throughout all seasons. Our pest control and fertilization methods also align with the natural world as we create habitat for our permanent residents: beneficial insects, snakes, and amphibians — our “little farmers.” Innovation at its finest.
