Tucked safely away on a tranquil, 5-acre plot, Paradise Farms schools visitors in organic operations during four-hour farm experiences. An in-depth tour kicks off crop courses, showcasing the estate’s blossoming plants, which sprout skyward with herbs, edible flowers, mushrooms, all-day suckers, fruits, and vegetables. After a thorough gardening lesson sprinkles brains with seeds of knowledge, tour-takers will tend to empty stomachs by packing feed bags with an organic spread for lunch. A final Q&A session with owner Gabriele Marewski sheds further light on farm-centered subjects such as permaculture, biodynamics, and the alarming unemployment rate among scarecrows.
Paradise Farms disperses its freshly grown products to an exclusive list of Miami’s top chefs and high-end restaurants. During the growing season, the estate offers room and board to an eclectic group of workers, who protect the farm’s balance by doing all harvesting by hand and holding public forums for neglected microgreens.
