Jumping from Plot to Plot

As a farmer without land, I had to get just a bit creative when starting my business.  Enter the multi-plot micro-farm idea!  Based on a contemporary reimagining of the WWII era “Victory Gardens,” I farm on 5 small plots located in unused open spaces in Jefferson County.

Production System

Hopscotch uses human-scale organic and sustainable production methods. My goal is to create a regenerative growing system that focuses on soil health, environmental health, and nutrient dense produce.  I employ a low till system, use crop rotation, incorporate crops to attract pollinators and beneficial insects, and irrigate with a drip system.  I maintain soil fertility with the use of compost, mulch, and cover crops. 

I also try to grow as main heirloom and open pollinated varieties as possible to promote biodiversity.
