Size of Family Food Farming
You are likely wondering just how much space you would have with your own family food farming plot. We have broken up the farming into 2-acre plots, which have then been subdivided into smaller areas. There are 14 of these subdivided sections in each 2-acre plot, and you would manage 1 of these subdivided sections. Each of the sections contains five bed rows for planting a variety of different fruits and vegetables.
These family food farming sections are designed to produce up to $4,000 worth of produce, and this is done in a way that honors and protects the health and long-term welfare of you, your family, and the land. Your Family Survival Food Farming plot will produce enough fresh vegetables to feed 5 or 6 individuals during the growing season, which is 8-10 months. With a greenhouse on-site, we propagate plants so things are ready to plant in late April. Succession planting allows you to realize a longer harvest through staggering planting dates.
Benefits of Family Food Farming
Dancing Feather Farm’s family food farming is an affordable way to subsidize the cost of feeding your family, a fantastic opportunity to give your children a hands-on educational experience, and a fulfilling way to connect with nature. In the spring due to our on-site greenhouse, you can plant your different plants in your food section and be able to start harvesting in approximately a week. Slip away from the day to day, give your family something other than playing on the computer in Bound Brook, Branchburg, Clinton, Flemington, Princeton, Tewksbury, and the surrounding areas.
