At Karlin Family Farms we have been experimenting with several approaches to land management, food production, and land management. Permaculture, short for permanent agriculture, is one of these approaches. In our first year we began creating a food forest that features 225 native fruit and nut trees as well as a 6500 sq. ft. perennial garden. This winter we will be developing a master plan for the property that will feature permaculture design throughout.
