Joe Marlow and Clay with South Winds Farm in Benson  


welcomed us to their farm as part of our new farm visit program.



My family and I are visiting our farms


to see in person how our farmers are growing our food.


South Winds Farm uses permaculture principles and sustainable methods.  The farm is off the grid, with a solar system for power.  They use hoop houses to protect the precious greens, which has allowed them to grow all summer. They also have started an orchard to add shade and a wind block in the future.


It was very exciting to see how Joe and Clay are growing the farm.  October 4th was the 2 year anniversery since Joe bought the property.  I am very excited to see it as it  


develops and I am happy they are part of the Rincon Valley Farmers & Artisans Market Family.
