RockyCrop Gardens is a half-acre market garden located three miles west of Hanceville, Alabama in the beautiful Stouts Mountains valley area. Here we grow a variety of seasonal vegetables and fruit in a permanent bed, minimal-till system.
We use natural ingredients such as compost and rock minerals to enhance our soil’s structure. We plant cover crops to retain soil nutrients and reduce erosion and we practice crop rotation to prevent bacterial build up.
For pest control we plant flowers and herbs to attract beneficial insects and we hang many birdhouses throughout the gardens. We are also learning the benefits of companion planting.
We love what we do.
