Field of the Sun
At the Champ du Soleil farm we work with solar power to run our grow house and barn. With a small footprint and careful management, we minimally affect our beautiful mountain surroundings. Our crops are carefully tended by hand without the use of pesticides or hormones as we strive to raise the very best products possible.
We specialize in Heirloom variety greens from days gone by. We love the whimsical names like Speckled Trout, Tom Thumb and May Queen. Our teeny Tennis Ball lettuce variety was grown by Thomas Jefferson at Monticello. We are firm believers in "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"!
