Green Fire Farm's name is inspired from the famous conservationist, Aldo Leopold's passage in his landmark book, Sand County Almanac. See more here @ http://www.aldoleopold.org/greenfire/about.shtml. Our business is seeking to integrate natural ecosystem functions to produce agricultural food products in a way that minimizes inputs (fertilizers, pesticides, fuel and machinery) and maximizes quality (nutrition, taste, and value-added).
A center point of our vision is stacking and interweaving different enterprises in sync to optimize efficiency. We really like the cyclic and holistic, and complex elements of some of the logos below. We also recognize that a simple, eye-catching logo has its merits. We would like to consider both.
Animals (cows, pigs, chickens, along with honey bees) are a major focus and products of our business, but what differentiates us from other producers is our incorporation of silviculture (tree plantings) and ecological processes and their associated benefits (shade, perennial feed, less maintenance, soil building, water quality, etc).
The roots of our farm are quite literally in the soil, and we approach our management with a focus on soil health, and consequently, water (and watershed) quality. We recognize and take responsibility for these elements of our farm.
This all leads to a food production system that feeds and supports the local community, is rich and healthy (vitality), and sustainable and resilient.
Feel free to use any of these above mentioned elements as a springboard for the logo. We like the idea of many of the below logos, but we want to be unique and recognizable! We also need a logo that will be effective on t-shirts, banners, and anything else that we might use to promote our brand.
Please contact me for any clarification on actual practices or techniques that we use, if need be.
