Whiskey Hill Farms

David Blume and Jannet Schraer are the owners of a 14-acre, organic farm which is home to 2 businesses.; Blume Distillation and Whiskey Hill Farms. One of the driving forces behind their farm is to integrate plant based fuel production with mechanical fuel production. By utilizing regenerative agriculture practices, they are able to build beneficial habitats that attract insects and frogs that prey on pests. In addition they utilize permaculture principals to grow a variety of exotic crops such as tumeric, ginger & galangal as well as more conventional crops such as tomatoes, melons, squash, and a variety of herbs. They are the largest provider of organic tumeric on the U.S. mainland where their soil rejuvenation system produces nutrient-dense food and medicinal crops year round.
Tours begin at 10 am with tours beginning every hour. Tour includes the greenhouses and distillery areas. Public will be able to see how the by-products of both operations provide feed stock for alcohol production and how plants and mechanical fuel production integrate to create a closed system of no waste.
