Sustainable Farming

We not only work but also live on our farm, we consume our products, and we take the health of our families, our neighbors and our customers very seriously. It is for these reasons we strive to be environmentally responsible while keeping our farmland fully productive and economically viable.

At the farm we utilize an integrated pest management (IPM) approach to growing all of our crops. This enables us to balance our environmental responsibility and productivity through management of our soil fertility and pest levels with a sound understanding of the crops we grow and their individual needs.

It is understandable that community members have different opinions and comfort levels with various agricultural practices and for that reason we welcome the opportunity to discuss the specifics of our growing practices with you.
