Organic Farming, Sustainable Farming & Knowing your Farmer!
Our Home Farm is registering Organic.
Our growing practices meet and often exceed the standards for organic certification. We use no nitrogen-based commercial fertilizers, relying instead on compost, cover crops, green manures and crop rotations to maintain and improve soil fertility.
More importantly, though, we are committed to sound stewardship It would not be consistent with our long-term stewardship role to pollute the water we use to irrigate our crops, or destroys pollinators, beneficial insects or soil microorganisms that provide essential ecosystem services.
We seek to steward well these precious resources.
