This organic farm sits atop the water supply for the 10 homes in the Dog Holler neighborhood. If the six homes the previous landowner owned had been developed, that water supply would have been imperiled. The current landowners are diligently and naturally rebuilding the soils, nurturing a vibrant avian community, and growing spectacular sunflowers.
