RockyCrop Farms is a tiny half-acre market garden located three miles west of Hanceville, Alabama, in the beautiful Stouts Mountains valley area. Here we grow blueberries, apples, plums, grapes and a variety of vegetables, herbs, and flowers.
Our produce is Certified Naturally Grown which means all crops are grown without synthetic herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers. Instead we use only natural ingredient and minerals such as cottonseed meal, rock phosphates, and wood ash to adjust our soil’s structure.
All soil is worked by hand. We build our beds by hand. We spread amendments by hand. We plant by hand. We water by hand. We weed by hand. We harvest by hand.
We plant cover crops to retain nutrients and reduce erosion. We practice crop rotation to prevent bacterial build-up and ward off pests. We plant flowers and herbs to attract beneficial insects. We hang many birdhouses throughout the gardens. All vegetables and herbs are grown in permanent beds with minimal tillage. We love what we do.
