Roots and Shoots has been in business since 2010. We're very proud to have built the entire business from ground up, without outside investment or support, and we think this makes us one of the best examples of how small, organic farms can succeed in local markets.

We’re a highly dynamic team, and six of us gain our year round livelihood from the farm. Although the job involves working hard and working quickly, we have a fun and inclusive working environment.

This winter, all of our managers participated in a series of on-farm workshops in compassionate communication, so we could learn to bring out the best in ourselves and everyone who works on the farm.
