About Kallisto Farms
Here at Kallisto Farms we grow a wide variety of heirloom and traditionally hybridized fruits, berries, vegetables, herbs and nuts, plus some ‘just for fun’ crops such as dragon fruit and sweet potatoes. While what Kallisto Farms grows is varied, you can count on the flavor being sublime.
We are always changing up our crops as we find what works best in our environment and what we enjoy eating!
Kallisto Farms start seeds in a small greenhouse, then the liners are hardened off outside on benches before being planted in the garden beds to mature.
Each crop and area has its’ own watering irrigation system to efficiently manage water usage, including drip and micro mist systems.
Valves are connected to a Hunter 'Hydrawise' smart wi-fi irrigation control panel for weather predictive water use.
Organically approved natural fertilizer amendments are sparingly added to the soil. The focus is on building soil health, recognizing that over use leads to problems of water quality and soil nutrient depletion. Cover crops and crop rotation help to balance out the need for amendments.
As trees are pruned, Kallisto Farms chips and mulches the trimmings to return to the soil as amendments. Cornstalks and other excess crop vegetation is also dried, then ground up and added to the mulch pile to be composted and go back into the garden the next season.
Kallisto Farms offers a large serenely beautiful venue deck space of 3,000 sq ft including an outdoor kitchen, multiple levels and a spectacular view.
