About this event

David Blume is the owner of a 14-acre, organic farm which is home to 2 businesses, Blume Distillation and Whiskey Hill Farms. One of the driving forces behind Whiskey Hill 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 in their 6 football field size greenhouses to grow a variety of exotic crops such as tumeric, ginger, wasabi, passionfruit & a variety of tropical fruit trees as well as more conventional crops such as tomatoes, corn, 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.
