Our Brookfield vineyard is under transition to organic, this year we are experimenting with permaculture techniques and alternate cover crops that are both decorative and edible! Tours are given of the organic vineyard. Bring your curiosity and questions about organic farming and how this can apply to your own lawn and gardens. Mark is accredited by NOFA, the North East Organic Farming Association and is an Organic Lawncare Accredited Professional.
Our Estate Grape Varieties We Grow:
White: Seyval Blanc, Vidal Blanc, LaCross, Niagara, Elvira, and Catawba
Reds: St. Croix, Frontenac, Leon Millot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
Our Affiliate Vineyards: These we manage or tenant farm, some we use the juice from as well. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Geneva Red, Osceola Muscat, and Reliant table grape, and some others in smaller quantities that would not have juice we can use. Some sites are organic and some are traditional. There are five geographic locations. Only Brookfield is open to the public. Some of the sites are for hobby, some are commercial, but all have unique growing characteristics that benefit particular varieties. Right Plant, Right Place. The more varieties you grow, the more your experience grows. We've been growing since 1978.
