farming practices


At Singing Nettle, we nourish the soil and steward the land so that it may provide us with an abundance of delicious vegetables for our community. We use regenerative growing techniques including no-till, composting, bio-char, cover-cropping and crop rotation to maintain healthy soil fertility and biology. All of our growing practices exceed organic certification standards – there are never any synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides used.

Our values

We farm to be in good relation with the land and our communities. We see local, small scale farming as a tangible way to contribute to social change, steward the land re-localize our economies.

What we grow

We grow a wide variety of crops suited to the climate of south-central Alaska. This includes greens like kale, lettuces, collards, hon tsai tai, mustards, pac choi, cabbages and more. We grow a rainbow of carrots, summer and winter squashes, a handful of potato varieties including our favorite bright-purple Magic Mollys. Other root crops include onions, turnips, rutabagas, celeriac, and specialty roots such as scorzonera and burdock. We grow herbs including garlic, lovage, sorrel, dill, mint, chives and so, so, so much more.
