The Graves family has called this land home for over a century now. Spanning over five generations, the farm has seen many types of agriculture, such as grain, cattle, gardens, bees, fish (trout), and more! Most recently, our efforts have been focused on conservation efforts to maintain wetlands. By working with nature, we have taken old excavation sites and transformed them into well established ponds that many animals now call home. We are more than just stewards of the land, we are a part of it.
After a decade of working in healthcare, Kristin has found her way back to her roots and is now moving into her fourth season with Fifth Gen. Not only does she have a 3 acre market garden, but she now has two beehives, a large scale garlic plot, and is also learning the family business of grain farming. Her heart is happiest while in the field, and is committed to supplying real people with real food. With big dreams and aspirations, she wants to find a way to turn her passion into a way of life for herself and for future generations on the Graves family farm.
Scapes are the greens of a garlic plant. Delicious to munch, pickle or fry. The perfect cure for any cold and sweeter than garlic bulbs. </br> </br> All varieties of garlic possess antibiotic properties to some forms of bacteria, viruses and intestinal parasites. Plants in the garlic family lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and may also be used a diuretic, an anti-inflammatory agent, an expectorant or a decongestant. Both garlic and onions contain allylic sulfides, which are being studied for their ability to help prevent certain types of cancer and coronary disease.
