About Vincent’s Eco Farm and organic farming
Vincent’s Eco Farm is a sustainable ecological and fully certified organic farm producing a comprehensive range of organic vegetables and processed vegetarian products such as olive oil and conserves. The farm strives to address environmental issues affecting the land such as soil erosion and salinity of the water table. It has a long-term self-sustainability plan in place for the land. Vincent’s Eco Farm involves its clients and the local community in all aspects of food production on the farm through their weekly information farm tours. They also offer opportunities for start-up micro-agribusinesses. Apart from their produce, they have a variety of activities, collaborations and projects on the land, such as eco-tourism through which they play host to Maltese and international agricultural students wishing to have a hands-on experience. They also host the ‘Skorba’ Farmhouse which hosts workshops, exhibitions and is also available for holiday letting.
