Mike and Max, Episode 3, John Givens Farm
Hi Folks, in this short video, Mike and I talk about our visit to John Givens Farm in Goleta. John is one of our primary farm partners, and is a long-time seasoned organic grower. As the video below highlights, he has an exemplary composting operation on his farm, and applies a new layer of compost before every new planting of crops in a field. This is a huge factor in the incredible quality and taste that comes off his farm, and he is constantly building up his soil to ensure true sustainability over time. The video is short, less than 4 minutes, so have a look for yourself! I've also posted below a video we made at the farm itself with Dana Olsen (John's right hand man) explaining the compost procedure.
