We love food - growing it, cooking it, and eating it! We believe food should be beautiful, delicious, and full of nutrition.
We have a deep reverence and respect for our land and we tend it in a way that keeps it healthy and bountiful. We follow all Organic standards and do not use any toxic pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers on our property. Our gardens are never tilled and are covered in mulch which preserves moisture and hosts beneficial soil bacteria, fungi, and earthworms. We use drip irrigation to conserve water. We believe that this care of the land translates into vegetables with superior nutrition and flavor.
Part of our mission at Juicy Roots is to create a rich native pollinator habitat. We plant flowers in our gardens and leave our native weeds to flower just for them. There is a constant stream of bees, butterflies, and sometimes even hummingbirds buzzing around the farm.
For our family, we raise chickens and ducks for eggs and lamb for meat. Their manure turns into compost and enriches the gardens and helps close the loop making our farm more sustainable and self-sufficient.
We are so honored to be farming in North Florida and sharing the fruits of our labor with our Jacksonville community. Thank you for your support!
