Quality of land:

Garden of Spices tillable acreage is approximately 35 acres total. Approximately 20 acres is fenced with 4ft woven wire topped with 1 strand of electric to prevent predation. As it was farmed intensively for multiple years, the nutrients and organic matter are very high. Can be certified organic tomorrow. In addition, there is approximately 1000 yards of compost on-site waiting to be spread. The land is composed of 3 major soil types: Wallington silt loam (approximately 16 acres) is a fertile, silt loam that is of statewide importance. This soil can classify as prime soil if it is tiled for drainage. Excellent production of pasture or vegetable ground (very few stones) Hoosic gravelly sandy loam (approximately 6 acres) is a dryer, gravelly soil.It is good for pasture but also grows excellent sweet potatoes and root crops. This soil shines in wet years as it is one of the first to dry out and be workable. Otisville gravelly sandy loam (approximately 3 acres) is a dryer, gravelly soil. Very similar to the Hoosic soil.
