The Garden Barn
The Garden Barn was constructed using upcycled lumber. One half of the barn functions as cold storage and an office for the vegetable farm manager; the other half functions as a wash and rinse station for preparing produce. A solar thermal system provides heat to the space and water.
Soil-based farming in our USDA certified Organic Farm Garden produces the majority of Robin Hills Farm product showcased in The Nest and Marketplace. Following USDA guidelines, our Farm Garden grows dozens of varieties of fruits and vegetables on 1½ acres, and includes the Garden Barn, two hoop houses used for season extension, an acre used for crop production, a demonstration garden, and a Children’s garden. Organic methods include crop rotation, cover cropping, integrated pest management, companion planting, and more.
