Growing & Farming Practices
With our farm, we take great care to grow using sustainable farming practices. This enables the land to continue to produce and stay healthy for years to come. With this in mind, we would like to explain some of our growing practices.
Are we organic? No, we are not certified organic. Our primary farming methods are natural and organic. By practicing crop rotation, cover crops, composting and using the 4R land stewardship methodology.
Why aren’t we certified organic? It takes many years and is extremely expensive to be certified organic. This is a possibility as we move forward and look to the future of our farm.
Do we spray? The short answer is yes. Although, we spray not all sprays are harmful. Mainly what we use for fungicides are elementals such as sulfur and copper, which control plant based fungus. For pests or bugs, we use organically approved Dipel and other biological OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) approved organisms. Both of which are part of organically based farming practices.
How do we control our weeds? To reduce the need for herbicides, our practices include plastic mulch, drip irrigation, and mechanical cultivation.
