David and Robyn Heeks started Heeks Farm in 2009 at the Breeze Incubator Farm before purchasing a farm in Bahama, where they currently have 6 acres under production. They grow all of their crops according to the USDA Organic Standards and use only natural fertilizers and insecticides approved by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI). They have 35 acres of fields and rotate crops through the fields so they have a 3 year separation before a field is used for the same crop again. They use a combination of cover crops and fallow when a field is not in use. In the winter they grow all of their crops outside in fields using row covers for protection. They have a small greenhouse that is used for starting transplants.
