Facebook Roebuck Farm

Jodi’s been farming and studying under the originator of the Grow Bio-Intensive form of farming, John Jeavons, for 18 years.
Jodi’s well known for using Jeavon’s bio-intensive method to build soil. Soil that’s deep and loose enough to literally put your arm into up to your elbow. It’s a soil that well known grower JM Fortier has called some of the best soil that he’s ever seen. It’s from this rich soil that Jodi farms, growing his own fertility, his own food, saving seeds, and educating the next generation of farmers.
