What is Ecolibrium?
At Ecolibrium it is our mission to change the way people think about food.
What if we brought the same keen sense of discernment we use when making decisions regarding technology, human interaction, or our jobs and schools to the choices we make regarding the food we feed ourselves and our families?
At Ecolibrium we grow food, cook food and bring people together around food. We see connections at every step. We believe protecting the land that supports and nourishes our families also strengthens our bodies, our businesses, and our economy.
We think of success in terms of generations, not years. A thriving and sustainable agricultural system will support our entire community, feed us and our descendants in perpetuity, and provide a space for people to celebrate and enjoy nature.
We started Ecolibrium because we believe that growing food in an ecologically sound manner enhances the health and vitality of our natural ecosystems and the human experience at large.
Our guiding principles include:
Certified organic fields adhering to Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) standards
Permanent beds to help increase soil health
Dynamic Pest Management
No-till, low disturbance soil practices to enhance the biodiversity of the soil
At Ecolibrium, the ethos of the farm is shared by our culinary team, which - like our farmers - view cooking as an agricultural process. Everyday we work to make our food system more local, connected, and resilient. Here are just a few of our core values:
Farm-driven, seasonal menu planning
Quality is paramount, in both product and process
Wood fired and other natural/traditional cooking techniques
Whole animal - Whole plant - Preserve when possible
Have fun and share it with others!
Without human connection, everything feels more challenging. Farming, cooking and eating have been cultural acts since the beginning of (wo)man - we have not invented anything - we just provide a space and opportunities for communities to connect the best way we know how.
