Argiculture at Apricity

We aspire to provide much of our own food from the surrounding woods and from our gardens. With this goal in mind, we are steadily improving our growing capacity, experimenting with different crop varieties, and trying new growing methods. Like everything else at the homestead, food production takes imagination, adaptation, love, and a great deal of work.

We currently cultivate a 4000square foot plot and are continuously expanding.
