Nautilus Farm

Located in the foothills of the Indian River, Nautilus Farm was founded with a strong vision of sustainability and stewardship of the earth. We strive to provide the highest quality, organically grown (currently non-certified) farm produce available to all at affordable prices. The market garden side of the business has become somewhat specialized in garlic production and now provides the community with a reliable source of premium seed garlic. The long term vision of the farm is to create a system of agroforestry where the natural forces that maintain forest systems are put to use growing food from fruit and nut trees. To that end, we have been planting out a great number of different perennial food producing trees and shrubs to determine which are the most suitable to our region and would be good candidates for larger scale diversified agroforesty. We are currently offering some of those perennials at the market for spring plantings.
