Triton's Farm History and Mission
Shipping is a terrible thing to do to vegetables. They probably get jet-lagged, just like people. ~Elizabeth Berry
It would be nice if the Food and Drug Administration stopped issuing warnings about toxic substances and just gave me the names of one or two things still safe to eat. ~Robert Fuoss
Our Mission is raising the quality of life.
Triton's Farm was purchased in 2004 with the idea that we wanted to change the way we live. We moved to the property in 2010 and since then we have been working on fencing the property, laying irrigiation lines, building housing for the animals and fixing equipment. I recently heard from an old time farmer, farming is 80% fixing and 20% farming. I know exactly what he was talking about.
We raise chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, guinea fowl, Dexter cattle and St. Croix sheep. We have a two acre orchard of herloom variety apples, pears, plums and peaches. Grapes, blueberries, currants, gooseberries, raspberries and cranberries, have all been planted and seem to be doing well. The aniamals are providing plenty of fresh fertalizer and the cows are busy turning our weedy acreage into nice pastures.
Everyone living on the farm has a job even if that just means lounging in the sun all day watching the world go by. That's Hectors job and he takes it very serious.
