We strive to only use chemicals when the quality of the crop is threatened by pests or disease. We use biological and natural disease prevention solutions as much as possible. This helps minimize exposure to unnecessary chemicals and to ensure that your produce is healthy, nutritious, and delicious. The appearance may not be perfect but we try hard to balance sustainable production practices with a product that you are proud to bring home to your family. We strongly believe in protecting the resources we have been blessed with. We strive to keep the land and crops we have at their healthiest. Our soil is tested on a regular basis for nutrients. This helps us plant more sustainably by showing us what produce is going to work well in certain areas by helping replenish the ground's nutrients or which ones will harm the soil by taking nutrients its already low on. Knowing what's in our soil helps us rotate our crops in the best way possible so that we can continue getting a good yield while protecting the soil. We also have lots of honey bees on our farm which helps pollinate much of our produce. They also provide the honey that we sell at our markets.
