The Backyard Farmer

Food doesn’t get more local than this


The farm-to-table movement sweeping the country proves the saying, “What’s old is new again.” It gets back to the healthy basics our grandparents and great-grandparents grew up on with "dooryard" gardens close to food preparation areas and food grown close to home.  


While you may not live on a farm, there’s no reason you can’t join in on this healthful approach to organic, fresh eating. The Cape Organics team can help you start raising your own food in a sustainable and fun way.  


Our garden designs, installation, and instruction will help you incorporate nutritious produce into your everyday eating through backyard farming – no matter what size your outdoor space may be. Our services include:

  • Soil testing and amending

  • Site analysis, selection, and design for optimal growing conditions

  • Raised bed and cold frame installation

  • Conversion or integration of existing flower and ornamental gardens into vegetable gardens


We also can provide you with education and instruction on:

  • Organic growing methods

  • Composting techniques

  • Companion plantings

  • Fallow fielding

  • Cover crops

  • Pest control and disease management
